Death

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
- Hauer, Rutger
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Publilius Syrus

2.
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.

3.
We all of us waited for him to die. The family sent him a check every month, and hoped he'd get on with it quietly, without too much vulgar fuss.
Osborne, John

4.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward

5.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Dickens, Charles

6.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.

7.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

8.
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

9.
There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?
Woody Allen

10.
Death is the enemy. I spent 10 years of my life singlemindedly studying, practicing, fighting hand to hand in close quarters to defeat the enemy, to send him back bloodied and humble and I am not going to roll over and surrender.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

11.
How gladly would I meet mortality, my sentence, and be earth in sensible! how glad would lay me down, as in my mother's lap! There I should rest, and sleep secure.
Milton, John

12.
Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Heidegger, Martin

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Remember man as you walk by, as you are now so once was I, as I am now, so you will be, so prepare for death and follow me.
Epitaph

17.
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

18.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia

19.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

20.
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

21.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage

22.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

23.
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

24.
Well, there's a remedy for all things but death, which will be sure to lay us flat one time or other.
Cervantes, Miguel De

25.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Milton, John

26.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Guthrie, Arlo

27.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
Gabrielle Zevin

28.
Death is the king of this world: 'Tis his park where he breeds life to feed him. Cries of pain are music for his banquet
Eliot, George

29.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
Publilius Syrus

30.
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.
Dowell, Coleman

31.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Hoffer, Eric

32.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Diderot, Denis

33.
There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
Butler, Samuel

34.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
Canetti, Elias

35.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Penn, William

36.
There is some comfort in dying surrounded by one's children.
Ann Radcliffe

37.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Luther, Martin

38.
I will be conquered; I will not capitulate.
Johnson, Samuel

39.
Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow.
Gabirol, Ibn

40.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

41.
There is left us ourselves to end ourselves.
William Shakespeare

42.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ovid

43.
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

44.
These have not the hope to die.
Dante Alighieri

45.
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

46.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas

47.
We are all dead men on leave.
Levine, Eugene

48.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Horton, Doug

49.
You must not fear death, my lads; defy him, and you drive him into the enemy's ranks.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

50.
There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
