Best Quotes about Death
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.

Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
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.
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.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.

A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
We are all dead men on leave.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
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
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
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]
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.

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.

For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.

As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales

Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess

Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
