Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

2.
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

3.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
Mark Twain

4.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth

5.
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

6.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Butler, Samuel

7.
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

8.
See in what peace a Christian can die.
Addison, Joseph

9.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
Meredith, George

10.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

11.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland

12.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

13.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
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

15.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
Byron, Lord

16.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Hammarskjold, Dag

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
William Shakespeare

20.
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

21.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Bible

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.
Arendt, Hannah

25.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
Marx, Groucho

26.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

27.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ovid

28.
'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

29.
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

30.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Ken, Thomas

31.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard

32.
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

33.
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

34.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Dryden, John

35.
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
Kabbalah

36.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Farber, Dave

37.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Dickinson, Emily

38.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

39.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Macdonald, George

40.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De

41.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Penn, William

42.
We are but tenants and shortly the great landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Jefferson, Joseph

43.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
Johnson, Samuel

44.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Lee, Nathaniel

45.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Donne, John

46.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Allen, Woody

47.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De

48.
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

49.
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. [Job 14:11-12]
Bible

50.
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
