"Death is for other people" appears in an old Moleskine.

I think it's an original quote, of my own creation, or I would've indicated an attribution. I often find ephemera like this in old notebooks and wonder what the circumstances were that made me jot it down and what I hoped to gain by doing so. Because I certainly don't believe that I'm immortal; indeed, as a Jew, it is my birthright to somewhat obsess over my own death (see: Woody Allen). But now I realize that the quote at least served some purpose: The creation of this entry. Ahoy!
