Best Quotes about Death
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
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.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis
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.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
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
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
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
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
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
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
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.
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.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
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 life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
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
