I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Best Quotes about 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.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
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
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
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.
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
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
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.
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
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
Only the young die good.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
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.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
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.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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 who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
