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.
Best Quotes about Death
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
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]
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
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.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.
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.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
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?
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.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
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.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
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.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
