Best Quotes about Death
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]

Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
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.
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.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
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.

He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
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.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
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.
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.

What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
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
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
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.
