Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

2.
But life is sweet, though all that makes it sweet. Lessen like sound of friends departing feet; And death is beautiful as feet of friend. Coming with welcome at our journey's end.
Lowell, James Russell

3.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
Bertolt Brecht

4.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De

5.
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

6.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Churchill, Winston

7.
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.
Cary, Joyce

8.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Hubbard, Kin

9.
'Tis all a Checker-board of Nights and days where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates and slays, and one by one back in the Closet lays.
Khayyam, Omar

10.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.

11.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

12.
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

13.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
William Shakespeare

14.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia

15.
There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
Camus, Albert

16.
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

17.
To awake from death is to die in peace.
Horton, Doug

18.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
Bacon, Francis

19.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

20.
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

21.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
John Scalzi

22.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

23.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ovid

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
Plato

28.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Bible

29.
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

30.
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

31.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Donne, John

32.
The fact that when we die we are nothing more than worm meat---I just don't think about it.
Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess

33.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Haracourt, Edmond

34.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

35.
It is impossible to experience one's death objectively and still carry a tune.
Woody Allen

36.
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

37.
Die, my dear doctor! That's the last thing I shall do!
Palmerston, Lord

38.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.

39.
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
Mann, Thomas

40.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Aurelius, Marcus

41.
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.

42.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.

43.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

44.
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

45.
I would not that death should take me asleep. I would not have him merely seize me, and only declare me to be dead, but win me, and overcome me. When I must shipwreck, I would do it in a sea, where mine impotency might have some excuse; not in a sullen weedy lake, where I could not have so much as exercise for my swimming.
Donne, John

46.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Bagnold, Enid

47.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
Berra, Yogi

48.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i

49.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

50.
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
