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.
Best Quotes about Death
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
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
Only the young die good.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
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.
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.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
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.

How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?
See in what peace a Christian can die.
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.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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.
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.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
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
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
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.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
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.
