Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.

The fear of death is worse than death.
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

To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
He has gone over to the majority.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
