On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Best Quotes about Death
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.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
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.
It is natural to die as to be born.
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.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
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
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
For certain is death for the born And certain is birth for the dead; Therefore over the inevitable Thou shouldst not grieve.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland
To awake from death is to die in peace.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
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.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
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.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
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

If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
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
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
