There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
These have not the hope to die.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
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.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
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]
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
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.
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.

Foster, John W.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.

Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
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.
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.
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.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas
A dying man needs to die, as a sleepy man needs to sleep, and there comes a time when it is wrong, as well as useless, to resist.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
