Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Best Quotes about Death
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
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.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
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
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
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.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
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.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
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.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
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.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
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.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
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.
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.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
