I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Best Quotes about Death
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
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
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
He would make a lovely corpse.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
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.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
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.
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.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
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
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
To awake from death is to die in peace.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
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
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 dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
These have not the hope to die.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
