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.
Best Quotes about Death
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.

As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
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
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.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.

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
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.

An evil life is a kind of death.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
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.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.

I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
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.
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.
Only the young die good.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
