Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Best Quotes about Death
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
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.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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.
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.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
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.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
It is natural to die as to be born.
The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
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]
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
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
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
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.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
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.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
