All of the days in our life are not rosy, and none of us probably expect that as well. But on some days we get really shocked due to some unexpected events. Our life changes for some good amount of time or maybe forever.
Unavoidable truths like betrayal from near and dear ones, relatives, friends, and special ones break us into pieces. The death of our relatives and friends shakes our lives so much that we can’t live a normal life for a long time.

Here are a few quotes that can help you get to think differently and come back again to the mainstream of life.
Quotes about the reality & truths of our life’s journey | Quotes about death
“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.”
― Mark Twain
“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up.
And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is.
Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”
― Lemony Snicket, Horseradish
“I’m not afraid of death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
― Woody Allen
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone.
This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
“The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
― J.K. Rowling
“Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.”
― Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman: 24 Stories
Quotes about betrayal
“When your trust has been betrayed, the only thing to do is live, learn and let go. Otherwise, the betrayal done by another will turn into hate for them. But they will not feel this hate, it will only hurt you more, growing bigger and darker.
So, live, learn, and let go.
By living, it means they did not hurt you so deep that you can not move forward. Learn, learn to not trust this person again, and to make more of a sound judgment in the future.
Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting. It means that you have let go of the pain it caused.
And by not forgetting, you will learn and move forward from the betrayal of the past.”
― S.L. Vaden
