Slaughter-House-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

"And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where al those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human."
Page 28

"...when a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, so it is silly for people to cry at his funeral. All moments, past, present, and future, always have existed, always will exist...It is just an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone it is gone forever."
