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.
Best Quotes about Death
He would make a lovely corpse.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
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.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
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.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
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.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
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.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
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.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
These have not the hope to die.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
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.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
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;
Beecher, Henry Ward
He has gone over to the majority.
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
