Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward

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.
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

We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
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
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
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
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
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.
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
Only the young die good.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.

To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
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.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
