Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Best Quotes about Death
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Only the young die good.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
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.
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.
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.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
'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
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.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
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.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
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
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
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.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
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
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Life is a loss of time.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
