Life and death both are the enemies of one another; in the presence of one, other doesn’t exist. They are like two ends of stream that can never meet. One is the origin and other is end. Both are the opposites of one another.
Life is the sign of living. Any organism that can breathe, grow and reproduce has life. It is the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body. Human beings, animals and plants are human beings are all living things.
I don’t know about plants, as I think plants can’t think, so idea of life and death is meaningless for them. But we human particularly and other animals commonly prefer life on death. According to Darwin; every specie struggle for existence, but those species which can adjust to environment and can compete with others, exist in the world, while those species which can’t adjust to environment and can’t compete with others, can’t survive and become extinct.
Human and animals want to live but don’t want to die. As life is also not bed of roses, but they still want to live. “Krishna was once asked what was the most miraculous thing in all creation, and he replied, "That a man should wake each morning and believe deep in his heart that he will live forever, even though he knows that he is doomed.” ― Christopher Pike, Phantom.
For them, death is more horror able thing. Death is the end. No one can go beyond death to find its reality in his life. Death is the dark point of life nothing to see, nothing to feel, nothing to listen.
Life is the period while death is the moment. Life is the starting and midpoint while death is ending point. Life is the name of colorful lights but death is the name of darkness. Life is the name of happiness while death is name of pain. Life is bunch of beautiful flower while death is bush full of thorns.
“What is man but a breathe of air? A day here today and a day there tomorrow.
Who are we to
boast about things that do not last. It all ends one day in sorrow.
The days that they were with us were the days we may never forget.
Even though they it feel like they left too soon, for this life my heart feels no regret.”
~ Chin Chan.
For some one life is the name of worries while death is the escape from worries and wretches. Life is the name of hustle and bustle, while death is the name of silence. “Life is a beautiful deception while death is a bitter reality”.
“There is an escape from everything while death is the escape from life.”
