„Most people, they have these near-death experiences. They go through a tunnel and they meet a bright light at the end of the tunnel. That bright light is actually their higher self, or the soul, which people reconnect with after they die, after you leave the physical body. In our Sufi practice we aspire to die before we die, to reconnect with that bright light, the higher self, while we’re still in a physical body.“

—  Terry Pratchett English author 1948 - 2015

Variante: He'd been wrong, there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and it was a flamethrower.

„The body was born and it will die. But for the soul there is no death.“

—  Ramakrishna Indian mystic and religious preacher 1836 - 1886

p. 319
Contexto: The body was born and it will die. But for the soul there is no death. It is like the betel-nut. When the nut is ripe it does not stick to the shell. But when it is green it is difficult to separate it from the shell. After realizing God, one does not identify oneself any more with the body. Then one knows that body and soul are two different things.
