Death

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
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Steve Jobs

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.
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

4.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.

5.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Maclaren, Alexander

6.
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

7.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Publilius Syrus

8.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Farber, Dave

9.
As for death one gets used to it, even if it's only other people's death you get used to.
Bagnold, Enid

10.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

11.
Must not all things at the last be swallowed up in death?
Plato

12.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!
Healey, Thomas F.

13.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Hendrix, Jimi

14.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Milton, John

15.
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

16.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Hubbard, Elbert

17.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

18.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
Carson, Johnny

19.
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
Aeschylus

20.
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth

21.
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

22.
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

23.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage

24.
I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
Bacon, Francis

25.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Franklin, Benjamin

26.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Horton, Doug

27.
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

28.
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

29.
He had been, he said, an unconscionable time dying; but he hoped that they would excuse it.
Charles II

30.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
Donne, John

31.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

32.
Death does determine life. Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.
Pasolini, Pier Paolo

33.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
Herodotus

34.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

35.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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.

39.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Euripides

40.
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

41.
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?
Hallaj

42.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Montgomery, James

43.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
A. Sachs

44.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Beckett, Samuel

45.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Luther, Martin

46.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.

47.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
William Shakespeare

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
