Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
Johnny Carson

2.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Greene, Graham

3.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

4.
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

5.
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.
Chandler, Raymond

6.
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.
Arendt, Hannah

7.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
Duffecy, James

8.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

9.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Butler, Samuel

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet
Eliot, George

13.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

14.
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.
Meredith, George

15.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

16.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
Frida Kahlo

17.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Hermes, Georg

18.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

19.
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.
Berger, John

20.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
Charles II

21.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Manilius, Marcus

22.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Camus, Albert

23.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.

24.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Montgomery, James

25.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Sophocles

26.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Hook, Sydney

27.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Arnold, Matthew

28.
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.
Mackay, Charles

29.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Einstein, Albert

30.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
John Scalzi

31.
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

32.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Bhagavad Gita

33.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i

34.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
Bertolt Brecht

35.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

36.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark

37.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

38.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat

39.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset

40.
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.
Beckett, Samuel

41.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth

42.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
Gabrielle Zevin

43.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
Butler, Samuel

44.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Bible

45.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Edith Sitwell

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

I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
Durrell, Lawrence

48.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Jefferson, Joseph

49.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
Bhagavad Gita

50.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Bible
