Death

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



Best Quotes about Death

1.
What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you.
Chandler, Raymond

2.
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]
Bible

3.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

4.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Gabirol, Ibn

5.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
Berra, Yogi

6.
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.
Steve Jobs

7.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

8.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

9.
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

10.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Bhagavad Gita

11.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Hubbard, Kin

12.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
Duffecy, James

13.
When death comes it is never our tenderness that we repent from, but our severity.
Eliot, George

14.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Einstein, Albert

15.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
Plato

16.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Butler, Samuel

17.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
William Shakespeare

18.
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.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

19.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Fromm, Erich

20.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Bacon, Francis

21.
An orphan's curse would drag to hell, a spirit from on high; but oh! more horrible than that, is a curse in a dead man's eye!
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

22.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

23.
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.
Dhammapada

24.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Oscar Wilde

25.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Darrow, Clarence

26.
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
Merton, Thomas

27.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

28.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Dickinson, Emily

29.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther

30.
Men are never really willing to die except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying completely.
Camus, Albert

31.
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

32.
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.
Bardot, Brigitte

33.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.

34.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Bible

35.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Ken, Thomas

36.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.

37.
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
Johnny Carson

38.
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
Mcgovern, George

39.
Only the young die good.
Herford, Oliver

40.
It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death, should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
Jonathan Swift

41.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
Mark Twain

42.
Death is the only inescapable, unavoidable, sure thing. We are sentenced to die the day we're born.
Gilmore, Gary Mark

43.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Dickens, Charles

44.
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.
Milton, John

45.
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

46.
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.
Hazlitt, William

47.
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

48.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Horace

49.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Edith Sitwell

50.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Dickinson, Emily
