To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Best Quotes about Death
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
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.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
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.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
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.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
Death is the final wake-up call.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet
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.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
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.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
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.
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.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
