As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.

Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.

Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
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.
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;

Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
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.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
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.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
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
