Death quotes
Death
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.

- Edith Sitwell
"A penny for your thoughts?" "A dollar for your death."

- Felix and Oscar
There are three kinds of death in this world. There's heart death, there's brain death, and there's being off the network.

- Guy Almes
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.

- Dyer, Wayne
Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

This is the third time; I hope good luck lies in odd numbers.... There is divinity in odd numbers, either in nativity, chance, or death.

- William Shakespeare
He would make a lovely corpse.

- Dickens, Charles
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.

- KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Christ's grave was the birthplace of an indestructible belief that death is vanquished and there is life eternal.

- Harnack, Adolph
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.

- Byron, Lord
Those who have been immersed in the tragedy of massive death during wartime, and who have faced it squarely, never allowing their senses and feelings to become numbed and indifferent, have emerged from their experiences with growth and humanness greater than that achieved through almost any other means.

- KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth
The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.

- Albert Einstein
When to the sessions of sweet silent thought I summon up remembrance of things past, I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste. Then can I drown an eye (unused to flow) For precious friends hid in death's dateless night, and weep afresh love's long since cancelled woe,and moan the expense of many a vanished sight. Then can I grieve at grievances foregone, and heavily from woe to woe tell over the sad account of fore-bemoaned moan, Which I new pay as if not paid before. But if the while I think on thee, dear friend, all losses are restored and sorrows end.

- Shakespeare, William
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.

- KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth
The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.

- Theodore Roosevelt
Immortality -- a fate worse than death.

- Edgar A. Shoaff
Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.

- Voltaire
EPITAPH, n. An inscription on a tomb, showing that virtues acquired by death have a retroactive effect. Following is a touching example: Here lie the bones of Parson Platt, Wise, pious, humble and all that, Who showed us life as all should live it; Let that be said -- and God forgive it!

- Ambrose Bierce
