Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
Hazlitt, William

2.
And what the dead had no speech for, when living, they can tell you, being dead: the communication of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.
Eliot, T. S.

3.
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

4.
Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
Lincoln, Abraham

5.
I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
Cocteau, Jean

6.
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
Melville, Jean-Pierre

7.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Matthew 10:28]
Bible

8.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Lee, Nathaniel

9.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool of life?
Bright, Grant M.

10.
It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

11.
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

12.
There's a thing that keeps surprising you about stormy old friends after they die; their silence.
Becht, Ben

13.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Dyer, Wayne

14.
Men are convinced of your arguments, your sincerity, and the seriousness of your efforts only by your death.
Camus, Albert

15.
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

16.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Dryden, John

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.
Macarthur, Douglas

20.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

21.
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

22.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset

23.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

24.
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

25.
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

26.
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.
Huxley, Aldous

27.
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

28.
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.

29.
We need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.
Landers, Ann

30.
A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
Thrale, Hester i

31.
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
Herodotus

32.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

33.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

34.
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.

35.
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

36.
Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.
Huxley, Aldous

37.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Woody Allen

38.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

39.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Donne, John

40.
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.

41.
Teach me to live that I may dread, the grave as little as my bed.
Ken, Thomas

42.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
James, Alice

43.
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

44.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther

45.
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

46.
I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know.
Durrell, Lawrence

47.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

48.
He that lives to forever, never fears dying.
Penn, William

49.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
Publilius Syrus

50.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Fielding, Henry
