If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
Best Quotes about Death
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
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.
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.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i
I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
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.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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 may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
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
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
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.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
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
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
