A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Best Quotes about Death
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call.
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.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
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.
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
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.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
An evil life is a kind of death.
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.
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.
In the attempt to defeat death man has been inevitably obliged to defeat life, for the two are inextricably related. Life moves on to death, and to deny one is to deny the other.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
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
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Being prepared for loss is never the same as being ready for it.
Randy K. Milholland
When I die I want to decompose in a barrel of porter and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin.
Donleavy, J. P.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
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.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
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.
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.
