But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
- Euripides
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
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

2.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.

3.
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

4.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
Epicurus

5.
I hate funerals and would not attend my own if it could be avoided, but it is well for every man to stop once in a while to think of what sort of a collection of mourners he is training for his final event.
Morris, Robert T.

6.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.

7.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Bacon, Francis

8.
If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive.
Samuel Goldwyn

9.
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

10.
'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

11.
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

12.
Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?
Huxley, Aldous

13.
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

14.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De

15.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Dickinson, Emily

16.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Cocteau, Jean

17.
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

18.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.

19.
I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead.
Buffett, Jimmy

20.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther

21.
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

22.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
Hawthorne, Nathaniel

23.
Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.
Bertolt Brecht

24.
'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

25.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

26.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

27.
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

28.
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
Hugh Elliott

29.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De

30.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Pamela Ribon

31.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Barker, Clive

32.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
Chandler, Raymond

33.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.

34.
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

35.
If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself now.
Matthew V. Lewis

36.
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. Its their way of falling.
Gide, Andre

37.
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is. Death can hide but not divide.
Havner, Vance

38.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
William Shakespeare

39.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Canetti, Elias

40.
O how small a portion of earth will hold us when we are dead, who ambitiously seek after the whole world while we are living.
Philip II

Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Plato

42.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.

43.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Sophocles

44.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

45.
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
Byron, Lord

46.
Not by lamentations and mournful chants ought we to celebrate the funeral of a good man, but by hymns, for in ceasing to be numbered with mortals he enters upon the heritage of a diviner life.
Plutarch

47.
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

48.
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

49.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Stephanie Klein

50.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
