Tirukkural 863: The Might of Hatred

In the estimation of foes miserably weak is he, who is timid, ignorant, unsociable and niggardly

A better word than death is transition, passing into a new form of life--life into life. It is similar to moving to a new country, having completed all of one's tasks. Death is a closing of the door on deeds well done, on all beneficial karmas.
