Best Quotes about Death
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
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.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
Death doesn't affect the living because it has not happened yet. Death doesn't concern the dead because they have ceased to exist.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
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.
When I pass, speak freely of my shortcomings and my flaws. Learn from them, for I'll have no ego to injure.
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
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.
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.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
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.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.
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
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.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!

A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
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
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
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.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
