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.
Best Quotes about Death
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.

Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
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.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
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.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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
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.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
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.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
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.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
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.
