See in what peace a Christian can die.
Best Quotes about Death
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
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.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
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.
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 something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
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.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
