It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Best Quotes about Death
'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
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
Browne, Sir Thomas
See in what peace a Christian can die.
The fear of death often proves mortal, and sets people on methods to save their Lives, which infallibly destroy them.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
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.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
The world is the mirror of myself dying.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
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.
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.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
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
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.

These have not the hope to die.
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.
Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.
There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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 death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
An evil life is a kind of death.
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.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
