Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
Best Quotes about Death
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
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.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
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
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
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
It is natural to die as to be born.
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
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
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.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
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.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo
An evil life is a kind of death.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
