Best Quotes about Death
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
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.
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
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
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.
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.
He has gone over to the majority.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
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
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
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?
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
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
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Death is the final wake-up call.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
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
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Only the young die good.
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.
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.

On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.

The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
