We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Best Quotes about Death
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
These have not the hope to die.
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.
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
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
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
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
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.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
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.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
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
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
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]
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
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
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.
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
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.
