Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Best Quotes about Death
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
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.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
'Tis all a Checker-board of Nights and days where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates and slays, and one by one back in the Closet lays.
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
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
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
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.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
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.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Browne, Sir Thomas
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.
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
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
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
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
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.
Death is the final wake-up call.
