„You're safe; that's gone, that wild caprice,
But tell me once before I cease,
Which does your Church esteem the kinder role,
To kill the body or destroy the soul?“

—  Vita Sackville-West, Context: Darling, I thought of nothing mean; I thought of killing straight and clean. You're safe; that's gone, that wild caprice, But tell me once before I cease, Which does your Church esteem the kinder role, To kill the body or destroy the soul? "And so it ends" quoted in V. Sackville-West : A Critical Biography (1974) by Michael Stevens, p. 91

„It is the natural duty of souls to do their work in the body; are we to suppose that when once they leave the body they spend all eternity in idleness?“

—  Sallustius Roman philosopher and writer
Context: It is the natural duty of souls to do their work in the body; are we to suppose that when once they leave the body they spend all eternity in idleness? Again, if the souls did not again enter into bodies, they must either be infinite in number or God must constantly be making new ones. But there is nothing infinite in the world; for in a finite whole there cannot be an infinite part. Neither can others be made; for everything in which something new goes on being created, must be imperfect. And the world, being made by a perfect author, ought naturally to be perfect. XX. On Transmigration of Souls, and how Souls are said to migrate into brute beasts.
