And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
Best Quotes about Death
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
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
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.

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

Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
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.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
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
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
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
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
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.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
'Tis all a Checker-board of Nights and days where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates and slays, and one by one back in the Closet lays.
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.
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.

Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
It is natural to die as to be born.
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.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
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.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.

It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
