Best Quotes about Death
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
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.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Life is a loss of time.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
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.
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
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.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
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.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
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.
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
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.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
'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.
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.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
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.
'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
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?
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
