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.
Best Quotes about Death
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?
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
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.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
'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
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
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]
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
He has gone over to the majority.
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.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
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.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
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
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
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
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.
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
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?
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.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
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
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Life is a loss of time.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
