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.
Best Quotes about Death
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Madam, Life's a piece in bloom death goes dogging everywhere: She's the tenant of the room he's the ruffian on the stair.
Henley, William Ernest
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
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.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
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
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
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
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.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
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.
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.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
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.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
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
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
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.
Pale Death with impartial tread beats at the poor man's cottage door and at the palaces of kings.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
To awake from death is to die in peace.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
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
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
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.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
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
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
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
