We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
- Montesquieu, Charles De
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
He was exhaled; his great Creator drew His spirit, as the sun the morning dew.
Dryden, John

2.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
A. Sachs

3.
So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.
William Shakespeare

4.
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

5.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Woody Allen

6.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Hook, Sydney

7.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Haracourt, Edmond

8.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
Plato

9.
Death is but a passage. It is not a house, it is only a vestibule. The grave has a door on its inner side.
Maclaren, Alexander

10.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

11.
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

12.
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

13.
I'd rather get my brains blown out in the wild than wait in terror at the slaughterhouse.
Craig Volk

14.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

15.
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.

16.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Gray, Thomas

17.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
Aurelius, Marcus

18.
To die is but to leave off dying and do the thing once for all.
Butler, Samuel

19.
Death is the final wake-up call.
Horton, Doug

20.
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.

21.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.
Montgomery, James

22.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Barker, Clive

23.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De

24.
'Tis all a Checker-board of Nights and days where Destiny with Men for Pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates and slays, and one by one back in the Closet lays.
Khayyam, Omar

25.
Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?
Kocher, Gerhard

26.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Horace

27.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

28.
We do not die because we have to die; we die because one day, and not so long ago, our consciousness was forced to deem it necessary.
Antonin Artaud

29.
Life is a loss of time.
Kocher, Gerhard

30.
If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age.
George Burns

31.
'Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life, to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado, and without so much as a rap o'er the pate, or a kick of the guts; to go out like the snuff of a farthing candle, and die merely of the mulligrubs, or the sullens.
Cervantes, Miguel De

32.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Woody Allen

33.
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

34.
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
Baldwin, James

35.
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

36.
The death of what's dead is the birth of what's living.
Guthrie, Arlo

37.
We are all dead men on leave.
Levine, Eugene

38.
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

39.
The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life.
Lucan, F. L.

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

41.
A person doesn't die when he should but when he can.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

42.
The fear of death is more to be dreaded than death itself.
Publilius Syrus

43.
It is not death that alarms me, but dying.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

44.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.
Mark Twain

45.
I don't believe in an after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
Allen, Woody

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Like pilgrims to the appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.
Dryden, John

49.
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.

50.
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
