We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Best Quotes about Death
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
To stop sinning suddenly.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
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.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
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 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
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
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.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
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
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
'Tis after death that we measure men.
Hope, James Barron
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
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
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.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
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.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
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.
These have not the hope to die.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
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.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
