Death

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
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
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

2.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Aurelius, Marcus

3.
To die is landing on some distant shore.
Dryden, John

4.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Bible

5.
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

6.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
Durrell, Lawrence

7.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

8.
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

9.
To a father, when a child dies, the future dies; to a child when a parent dies, the past dies.
Auerbach, Red

10.
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home, why should we not look forward to the arrival?
Lewis, C. S.

11.
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. [Psalms 39:4]
Bible

12.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Gray, Thomas

13.
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

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.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
Conrad, Joseph

16.
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
Merton, Thomas

17.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

18.
At death we cross from one territory to another, but we'll have no trouble with visas. Our representative is already there, preparing for our arrival. As citizens of heaven, our entrance is incontestable.
Lutzer, Erwin W.

19.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Franklin, Benjamin

20.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
Young, Edward

21.
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

22.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
Milton, John

23.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther

24.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.

25.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

26.
It's sad when our daddies die. Makes us one less person inside.
Pamela Ribon

27.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Allen, Woody

28.
In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions life puts to us.
Hammarskjold, Dag

29.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Guthrie, Arlo

30.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Allen, Woody

31.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

32.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.

33.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Frost, Robert

34.
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

35.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Lee, Nathaniel

36.
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

37.
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

38.
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

39.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Fromm, Erich

40.
Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
Colton, Charles Caleb

41.
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

42.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

43.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

44.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
Franklin, Benjamin

45.
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
Keats, John

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
The fear of death is worse than death.
Burton, Robert

50.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ovid
