I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
Best Quotes about Death
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
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.
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.
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.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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.
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.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
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
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
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
To stop sinning suddenly.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
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
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
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
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
He has gone over to the majority.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
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 only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
