Da Vinci, Leonardo
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.

Beecher, Henry Ward
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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.

Lowell, James Russell

You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
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.
The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
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
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
