To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Best Quotes about 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
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
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
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
We are all dead men on leave.
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.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
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
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. [Psalms 39:4]
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
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
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
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.
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
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
