It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.

Moody, Dwight L.
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

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.

Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.

Lewis, C. S.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
