Best Quotes about Death
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
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.
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.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
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.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
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
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Madam, Life's a piece in bloom death goes dogging everywhere: She's the tenant of the room he's the ruffian on the stair.
Henley, William Ernest
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
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
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.
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
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
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
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.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
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
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
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
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
We are all dead men on leave.
An evil life is a kind of death.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
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.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children;
Beecher, Henry Ward
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
