It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
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
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.

He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
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.

Pasolini, Pier Paolo
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.

Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
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.

What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
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.
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
