When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
Best Quotes about Death
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.

For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
The world is the mirror of myself dying.

I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call.
