Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
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

2.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
Horton, Doug

3.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.

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.
Miller, Henry

5.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

6.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Keats, John

7.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

8.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
Bertolt Brecht

9.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

10.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz

11.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Woody Allen

12.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
Carson, Johnny

13.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther

14.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Milton, John

15.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

16.
We are all dead men on leave.
Levine, Eugene

17.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Hoffer, Eric

18.
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

19.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Penn, William

20.
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

21.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Hallaj

22.
Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.
Melville, Herman

23.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Hammarskjold, Dag

24.
Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.
Aurelius, Marcus

25.
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.
Chopra, Deepak

26.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.

27.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

28.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Bible

29.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Manilius, Marcus

30.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Palmerston, Lord

31.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

32.
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.
Hesse, Hermann

33.
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

34.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.

35.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
William Shakespeare

36.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.

37.
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.
Arendt, Hannah

38.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

39.
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.

40.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Montgomery, James

41.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

42.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
Dryden, John

43.
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.
