Allen, Fred A.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
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.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.

La Bruyere, Jean De
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
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.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
Only the young die good.
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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 fear of death is worse than death.
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 is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
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.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage

He would make a lovely corpse.
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.
dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
