Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
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.

Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!

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
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.

The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.

Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
