Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
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
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.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
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.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
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.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Only the young die good.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
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.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
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]
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
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.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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
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
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 always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
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
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
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.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
