Death

I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
- Donne, John
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

2.
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.
Conrad, Joseph

3.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Hammarskjold, Dag

4.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Dickinson, Emily

5.
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

6.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
Craig Volk

7.
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

8.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

9.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.

10.
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.
Antonin Artaud

11.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Ken, Thomas

12.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Bronte, Emily

13.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
Bacon, Francis

14.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Camus, Albert

15.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron

16.
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

17.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Fromm, Erich

18.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
Keats, John

19.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Woody Allen

20.
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

21.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
Johnson, Samuel

22.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

23.
'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

24.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
Ann Radcliffe

25.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.

26.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Edith Sitwell

27.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Bible

28.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage

29.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

30.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.

31.
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.

32.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Gabirol, Ibn

33.
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.
Miller, Henry

34.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

35.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

36.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Hubbard, Kin

37.
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
Alsop, Steward

38.
We are all dead men on leave.
Levine, Eugene

39.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
Landers, Ann

40.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Manilius, Marcus

41.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
Palmer, Laura

42.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.

43.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Becht, Ben

44.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
Bible

45.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold

46.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
David Assael

47.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Hoffer, Eric

48.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
Milton, John

49.
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]
Bible

50.
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
