Death

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.
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Churchill, Winston

2.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

3.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
Luther, Martin

4.
No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.
Broch, Hermann

5.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

6.
Death eats up all things, both the young lamb and old sheep; and I have heard our parson say, death values a prince no more than a clown; all's fish that comes to his net; he throws at all, and sweeps stakes; he's no mower that takes a nap at noon-day, but drives on, fair weather or foul, and cuts down the green grass as well as the ripe corn: he's neither squeamish nor queesy-stomach d, for he swallows without chewing, and crams down all things into his ungracious maw; and you can see no belly he has, he has a confounded dropsy, and thirsts after men's lives, which he gurgles down like mother's milk.
Cervantes, Miguel De

7.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Cicero, Marcus T.

8.
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

9.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Woody Allen

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
Publilius Syrus

15.
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

16.
Death is like an arrow that is already in flight, and your life lasts only until it reaches you.
Hermes, Georg

17.
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

18.
Between my head and my hand, there is always the face of death.
Picabia, Francis

19.
A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.
Gurdjieff, George

20.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Dickinson, Emily

21.
Your body must become familiar with its death -- in all its possible forms and degrees -- as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
Hammarskjold, Dag

22.
There is no death. the stars go down to rise upon some other shore. And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, they shine for ever more.
Mccreery, John Luckey

23.
I stay a little longer, as one stays, to cover up the embers that still burn.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

24.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Euripides

25.
Death doesn't frighten me.
Diana, Princess of Wales

26.
The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
Dyer, Wayne

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

30.
Death is the dropping of the flower that the fruit may swell.
Beecher, Henry Ward

31.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Publilius Syrus

32.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Haracourt, Edmond

33.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Diderot, Denis

34.
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.
Butler, Samuel

35.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
William Shakespeare

36.
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

37.
All that tread, the globe are but a handful to the tribes, that slumber in its bosom.
Bryant, William C.

38.
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
Hendrix, Jimi

39.
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

40.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Matt Frewer

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Bronte, Emily

44.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De

45.
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children;
Beecher, Henry Ward

46.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

47.
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
