Best Quotes about Death
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
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.
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.
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.
I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
Pale Death with impartial tread beats at the poor man's cottage door and at the palaces of kings.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
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
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
It is natural to die as to be born.
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.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
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.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
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.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
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
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children;
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.

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 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
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
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 landing on some distant shore.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
Only the young die good.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
The fact that when we die we are nothing more than worm meat---I just don't think about it.
Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
