Best Quotes about Death
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
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.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
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.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
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
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
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.
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.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Browne, Sir Thomas
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
