Death

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
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
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

2.
The fact that when we die we are nothing more than worm meat---I just don't think about it.
Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess

3.
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

4.
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
Macdonald, George

5.
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
Horace

6.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
Dickinson, Emily

7.
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
Craig Volk

8.
An evil life is a kind of death.
Ovid

9.
He has gone over to the majority.
Petronius

10.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset

11.
As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus

12.
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

13.
A man should not leave this earth with unfinished business. He should live each day as if it was a pre-flight check. He should ask each morning, am I prepared to lift-off?
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

14.
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

15.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
To be born free is an accident; To live free a responsibility; To die free is an obligation.
Davis, Mrs Hubbard

17.
One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

18.
Nothing that is really good and God-like dies.
Arndt, Ernest Moritz

19.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

20.
Death is the last enemy: once we've got past that I think everything will be alright.
Ellis, Alice Thomas

21.
Life is the jailer, death the angel sent to draw the unwilling bolts and set us free.
Lowell, James Russell

22.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Bible

23.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

24.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Allen, Woody

25.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
Carson, Johnny

26.
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

27.
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.

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

Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Forster, Edward M.

Death is the great adventure beside which moon landings and space trips pale into insignificance.
Bayly, Joseph

35.
I'm afraid I'm being an awful nuisance.
Edith Sitwell

Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

37.
Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!
Matt Frewer

38.
I have seen a thousand graves opened, and always perceived that whatever was gone, the teeth and hair remained of those who had died with them. Is not this odd? They go the very first things in youth and yet last the longest in the dust.
Byron, Lord

39.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
Miller, Joaquin

40.
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

41.
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

42.
But there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green.

I am not dying, not anymore than any of us are at any moment. We run, hopefully as fast as we can, and then everyone must stop. We can only choose how we handle the race.
Hugh Elliott

45.
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

46.
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must return
Khan, Pir Vilayat

47.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

48.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men all live in a city without walls.
Epicurus

49.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.

50.
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
