The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Best Quotes about Death
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
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.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
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.
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.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
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.
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.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
Madam, Life's a piece in bloom death goes dogging everywhere: She's the tenant of the room he's the ruffian on the stair.
Henley, William Ernest
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
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
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
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.
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.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean 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
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
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
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
