There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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 will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
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]
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
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.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
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 death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
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.
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.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
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.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
