Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Best Quotes about Death
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
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.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
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
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
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.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
'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.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
An evil life is a kind of death.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
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.
Be open to your dreams, people. Embrace that distant shore. Because our mortal journey is over all too soon.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
To awake from death is to die in peace.
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.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
Only the young die good.
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.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
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.
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.
