I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
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
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
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.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Madam, Life's a piece in bloom death goes dogging everywhere: She's the tenant of the room he's the ruffian on the stair.
Henley, William Ernest
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Death is the final wake-up call.
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.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
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.

One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
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.
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
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
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
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 you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
