O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
Best Quotes about Death
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
I look upon life as a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it. Now that the time is coming to give it back, I have no right to complain.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard
I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
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.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
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.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
An evil life is a kind of death.
To awake from death is to die in peace.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
So that he seemed not to relinquish life, but to leave one home for another.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
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
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
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.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
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.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
He would make a lovely corpse.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
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.
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.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
