Best Quotes about Death
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
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
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 killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
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.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
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
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
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 us go in; the fog is rising.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
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.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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
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.
'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.

Plautus, Titus Maccius

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
