The following are related quotes:

“When the cell is divided in a hundred thousand parts, the primitive animal dies, but all his laws still exist. Oh, my Sophie, I still have the hope to touch you, to feel you, to love you, to seek you, to blend with you when we no longer exist! If there were in our nature a law of affinity; if we were destined to blend into one common being; if in the space of eternity I could remake a whole with you; if the dispersed molecules of your lover became agitated and began to search for yours! Leave me this hope, this consolation. It’s so sweet. It assures me of eternity in you and with you.”
Denis Diderot (1759), “Letter to Sophie Volland”, Oct 15[1]
“A great deal of what has been written on this subject, relates to the continuity of the ‘ego’ in space and time. The student must fruitlessly try to eliminate, and painfully learn, that in order to do it, he must find the ‘equation on continuity’. Great principle of all we see; thou endless continuity!”
James Maxwell (1878), “A Paradoxical Ode / After Shelley” (plus two earlier statements) [2]
“My belief system is that when this is over, it's over. That you don't look down from heaven and wait for your loved ones to join you. There may be some soul activity, but I'm not sure about that. But what I am sure about is that your molecules continue and in due time become something else. That's science.”
— William Shatner (2006), “Interview”, History Channel, Mar[3]
Stewart [1790] expounds what might be described as a ‘panbiomorphic universe’, it deserves an entirely new term just for itself, in which human identity is no different in category from a wave, flame, or wind, having an entirely modal existence.”
— David Fairer (2009), Organising Poetry: The Coleridge Circle, 1790-1798 (pg. 53)[4]
