Let us go in; the fog is rising.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
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
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
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.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
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.
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
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
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.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
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.
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.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
To awake from death is to die in peace.
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
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.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
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.
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo
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 report of my death was an exaggeration.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
The fear of death is worse than death.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
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.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
