- Allen, Woody
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Gurdjieff, George

2.
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

3.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Hubbard, Kin

4.
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
Baldwin, James

5.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

6.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Horton, Doug

7.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Donne, John

8.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Penn, William

9.
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
Huxley, Aldous

10.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

11.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

12.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Montgomery, James

13.
Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
Ionesco, Eugene

14.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

15.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.

16.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

17.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
Carson, Johnny

18.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Greene, Graham

19.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
Johnson, Samuel

20.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Camus, Albert

21.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

22.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Arnold, Matthew

23.
Life is one of the most important causes of death.
Kocher, Gerhard

24.
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

25.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Fromm, Erich

26.
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

27.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
Berger, John

28.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De

29.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
A. Sachs

30.
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

31.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
Byron, Lord

32.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
Epicurus

33.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Hendrix, Jimi

34.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Canetti, Elias

35.
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
Buffett, Jimmy

36.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
Hammarskjold, Dag

37.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Bronte, Emily

38.
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

39.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas

40.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
Havner, Vance

41.
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.
Dowell, Coleman

42.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

43.
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.
Hugh Elliott

44.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Da Vinci, Leonardo

45.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
Camus, Albert

46.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

47.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Manilius, Marcus

48.
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

49.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De

50.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark
