Lutzer, Erwin W.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.

Davis, Mrs Hubbard
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.

See in what peace a Christian can die.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
To stop sinning suddenly.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
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 dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
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.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
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
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
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.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
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.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
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
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.

When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
