Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Best Quotes about Death
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
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.
Life is a loss of time.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
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.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
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.
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
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
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
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. [Psalms 39:4]
An evil life is a kind of death.
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
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
