When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
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.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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 Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
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.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
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.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
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
The fear of death is worse than death.
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.
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.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
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
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
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.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
