For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Best Quotes about Death
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?
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.
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.
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Life is a loss of time.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
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
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
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.
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
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.
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children;
Beecher, Henry Ward
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
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
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.

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.
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
To die is landing on some distant shore.
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]
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
