There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Best Quotes about Death
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
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
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
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
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
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.
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
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
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.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
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.
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
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.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
To stop sinning suddenly.
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.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Only the young die good.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
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.
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.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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
