Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
Best Quotes about Death
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
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
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
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
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
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.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
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
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
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.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
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
The fear of death is worse than death.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
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.
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
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.
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
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
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.
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
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
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
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
