So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
Best Quotes about Death
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
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
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.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
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
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.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Death is the final wake-up call.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
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.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
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.
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
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.
An evil life is a kind of death.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Loss and possession, Death and life are one. There falls no shadow where There shines no sun.
We are all dead men on leave.
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
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.
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
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
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.
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.
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.
These have not the hope to die.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
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 liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
