Best Quotes about Death
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
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.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
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 cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
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.
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
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
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
