I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Best Quotes about Death
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
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.
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.
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
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.
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
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
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.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
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
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.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
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.
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.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
'Tis all a Checker-board of Nights and days where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates and slays, and one by one back in the Closet lays.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
The fear of death is worse than death.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
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.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
To stop sinning suddenly.
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
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?
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
