A useless life is an early death.
- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Heidegger, Martin

4.
When I have fears that I may cease to be, Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain.
Keats, John

5.
When you lose someone you love, you die too, and you wait around for your body to catch up.
John Scalzi

6.
Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
Mitford, William

7.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
Woody Allen

8.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Oscar Wilde

9.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, and yet a third of life is passed in sleep.
Byron, Lord

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

11.
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

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

14.
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

15.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

16.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Frost, Robert

17.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. [New Testament]
Bible

18.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
Herodotus

19.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.

20.
For three days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
Johnny Carson

21.
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.

22.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Butler, Samuel

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.
Epictetus

27.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.

31.
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

32.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Woody Allen

33.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Dyer, Wayne

34.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
William Shakespeare

35.
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.

36.
Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De

37.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De

38.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Butler, Samuel

39.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Haracourt, Edmond

40.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

41.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
Hawthorne, Nathaniel

42.
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

43.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i

44.
Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He comet up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
Book Of Common Prayer

45.
Most of us die with much of our beautiful music still in us, un-sung, un-played.
Bright, Grant M.

46.
I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
Jarman, Derek

47.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

48.
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

49.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

50.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
Frida Kahlo
