Best Quotes about Death
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
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.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
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.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
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
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.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children;
Beecher, Henry Ward
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of 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.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
