- Charles II
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

2.
'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

3.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Bible

4.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
Conrad, Joseph

5.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

6.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Luther, Martin

7.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.

8.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Hubbard, Elbert

9.
We begin to die as soon as we are born, and the end is linked to the beginning.
Manilius, Marcus

10.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Jefferson, Joseph

11.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
Epicurus

12.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De

13.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

14.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

15.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
Bible

16.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
A. Sachs

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
Moody, Dwight L.

20.
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

21.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i

22.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Dickens, Charles

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Hook, Sydney

26.
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

27.
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
Johnny Carson

28.
To awake from death is to die in peace.
Horton, Doug

29.
If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

30.
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
Kierkegaard, SĀ°ren

31.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

32.
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

33.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

34.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Greene, Graham

35.
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
Antonin Artaud

36.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

37.
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
Melville, Jean-Pierre

38.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Picabia, Francis

39.
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

40.
Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.
Dickinson, Emily

41.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Franklin, Benjamin

42.
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.
Plath, Sylvia

43.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Allen, Woody

44.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De

45.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb

46.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland

47.
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

48.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

49.
As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
Donne, John

50.
If only I could understand the reason for my crying. If only I could stop this fear of dreaming that I'm dying.
Palmer, Laura
