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.
Best Quotes about Death
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
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.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
'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.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
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
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
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
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
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.
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
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
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.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
We are all dead men on leave.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
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 last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
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.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
Life is a loss of time.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
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
Pale Death with impartial tread beats at the poor man's cottage door and at the palaces of kings.
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
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
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.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
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.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
