There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
Best Quotes about Death
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
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
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
To stop sinning suddenly.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Only the young die good.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
We are all dead men on leave.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
He would make a lovely corpse.
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.
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]
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
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]
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
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 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.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
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.
dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call.
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
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
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
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.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
These have not the hope to die.
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.
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.
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.
I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
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.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
