Death has watched humanity from its conception; he has seen them accomplish great acts of good and great acts of evil. When Death meets Liesel for the last time, the time of her death, he says to her, “I am haunted by humans.” Death always either overestimates or underestimates the human race, and he is always surprised by its brilliance and devastation.

Just as the death is ‘happy’ in "Thanatopsis", it sheds a different light on many things, such as Nature and how it helps with the pain. The whole nature aspect makes this piece vary different from the opposing "Death Beyond Constant Love" piece. "Thanatopsis" focuses on the mother-nature-going-home aspect vs the Other piece where it is all about Choices and how we choose to use them.
