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]
Best Quotes about Death
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
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.
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
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.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
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
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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]
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
'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.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
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.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
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
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
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.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
