It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Best Quotes about Death
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
Only the young die good.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
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.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
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 a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.
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
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
'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
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.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
