Best Quotes about Death

The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Guthrie, Arlo

3.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
Mark Twain

4.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward

5.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Franklin, Benjamin

6.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Euripides

7.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De

Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Palmerston, Lord

9.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.

Hammarskjold, Dag

The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.

Hendrix, Jimi

14.
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?
Hallaj

15.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
Conrad, Joseph

16.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Gabirol, Ibn

17.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
Miller, Henry

18.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland

19.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Hermes, Georg

20.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

21.
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.
Kabbalah

22.
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De

23.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Maclaren, Alexander

24.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Horace

25.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.

26.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Hauer, Rutger

27.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
Nepos, Cornelius

28.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset

29.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Canetti, Elias

30.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Becht, Ben

31.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

32.
I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
Hugh Elliott

33.
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.
Huxley, Aldous

34.
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.
Antonin Artaud

35.
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.
Plath, Sylvia

36.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Dryden, John

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.

38.
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.
Melville, Jean-Pierre

39.
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.
Byron, Lord

40.
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.
Byron, Lord

41.
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

42.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Gray, Thomas

Melville, Herman

47.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Plato

48.
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.

49.
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis

50.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
Aeschylus
