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.
Best Quotes about Death
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
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.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
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.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
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]
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
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.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
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.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
He has gone over to the majority.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
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
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Only the young die good.
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.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
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
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
I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
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.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
