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!
Best Quotes about Death
He has gone over to the majority.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
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
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Only the young die good.

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.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
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
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
These have not the hope to die.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
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.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.

In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
An evil life is a kind of death.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
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
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must 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.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
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.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
