Death

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
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
Fromm, Erich

2.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Stephanie Klein

3.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

4.
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.

5.
Death has but one terror, that it has no tomorrow.
Hoffer, Eric

6.
He would make a lovely corpse.
Dickens, Charles

7.
Death is not the worst; rather, in vain To wish for death, and not to compass it.
Sophocles

8.
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

9.
A man's death makes everything certain about him. Of course, secrets may die with him. And of course, a hundred years later somebody looking through some papers may discover a fact which throws a totally different light on his life and of which all the people who attended his funeral were ignorant. Death changes the facts qualitatively but not quantitatively. One does not know more facts about a man because he is dead. But what one already knows hardens and becomes definite. We cannot hope for ambiguities to be clarified, we cannot hope for further change, we cannot hope for more. We are now the protagonists and we have to make up our minds.
Berger, John

10.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Bible

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
Beaumont, Francis

14.
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

15.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
La Fontaine, Jean De

16.
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.

17.
Woe, woe, woe... in a little while we shall all be dead. Therefore let us behave as though we were dead already.
Chandler, Raymond

18.
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

19.
It is natural to die as to be born.
Bacon, Francis

20.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Einstein, Albert

21.
We all have to die some day, if we live long enough.
Farber, Dave

22.
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

23.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
Epicurus

24.
Man has the possibility of existence after death. But possibility is one thing and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing.
Gurdjieff, George

25.
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

26.
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

27.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

28.
Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

29.
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

30.
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

31.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham

32.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Woody Allen

33.
Death always waits. The door of the hearse is never closed.
Bayly, Joseph

34.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

35.
Unquiet souls. In the dark fermentation of earth, in the never idle workshop of nature, in the eternal movement, yea shall find yourselves again.
Arnold, Matthew

36.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
Horton, Doug

37.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
Miller, Joaquin

38.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Eliot, George

39.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

41.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Bible

42.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De

43.
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.

44.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.

45.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Dryden, John

46.
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

47.
I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Allen, Woody

48.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

49.
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

50.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Hubbard, Elbert
