If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
Best Quotes about Death
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
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.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
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.
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.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
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.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
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 hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
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
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
We are all dead men on leave.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
He would make a lovely corpse.
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
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.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
