Best Quotes about Death
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?
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
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.

Randy K. Milholland

La Fontaine, Jean De
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
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.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
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.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
The fear of death is worse than death.
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.
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.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
Only the young die good.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?

Plautus, Titus Maccius
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
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.
