A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.

Browne, Sir Thomas

Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.

It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
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]
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
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.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
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
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 do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
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.

I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage

We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
