But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
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
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.
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
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.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
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
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
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.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Only the young die good.
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
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
The fact that when we die we are nothing more than worm meat---I just don't think about it.
Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
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
