Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
Best Quotes about Death
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
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
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
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
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
These have not the hope to die.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Life is a loss of time.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
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.
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.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
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 a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
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
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
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.
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.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
