A beautiful attitude toward death

Frank Ford send me an email today with a whole list of quotations and this was one of them:

When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

-- Chief Aupumut, Mohican (1725)

I think that is truly beautiful.
