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
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
The fear of death is worse than death.

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.
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
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.

Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.

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.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.

It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer
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.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet
