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.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
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.
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.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
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
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
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.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
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.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
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.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
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
dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call.
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 only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
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
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
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
The fear of death is worse than death.
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
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.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
He has gone over to the majority.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
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.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
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
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
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.
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?
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
