QUOTE: For death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. [All Quiet on the Western Front]
AUTHOR: Erich Maria Remarque (born Erich Paul Remark; 22 June 1898 – 25 September 1970) was a German author, most known for his novel: All Quiet on the Western Front.
APPLICATION: This quote was taken from his novel, All Quiet on the Western Front. This quote means that when life and death passes around the corner, be it war, terminally-ill patients or someone on death row, it is very scary and not fun at all. Some people say that the death penalty is the easy way out for killers but death is really more frightening than life when you have to face it.
