Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
For the sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.
Byron, Lord

2.
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

3.
There's a strange sort of quiet when you're dying. It's as if you're in a glass room, and the walls keep getting thicker and thicker.
Gabrielle Zevin

4.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. [Psalms 116:15]
Bible

5.
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

6.
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

7.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Hubbard, Elbert

8.
Death is a displaced name for a linguistic predicament.
Man, Paul De

9.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.
Miller, Joaquin

10.
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.

11.
I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return.
Frida Kahlo

12.
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
Hubbard, Kin

13.
Fear of death has been the greatest ally of tyranny past and present.
Hook, Sydney

14.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
Bible

15.
The infant runs toward it with its eyes closed, the adult is stationary, the old man approaches it with his back turned.
Diderot, Denis

16.
We are all of us resigned to death: it's life we aren't resigned to.
Greene, Graham

17.
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

18.
Because of its tremendous solemnity death is the light in which great passions, both good and bad, become transparent, no longer limited by outward appearances.
Kierkegaard, SĀ°ren

19.
Personally I have no bone to pick with graveyards, I take the air there willingly, perhaps more willingly than elsewhere, when take the air I must.
Beckett, Samuel

20.
Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Bhagavad Gita

21.
Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Epicurus

22.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

23.
When we die, no one remembers us for what we weighed. Our weight isn't etched into our headstones.
Stephanie Klein

24.
The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson

25.
It hath often been said that it is not death but dying that is terrible.
Fielding, Henry

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

27.
A useless life is an early death.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
'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

29.
Death is feared as birth is forgotten.
Horton, Doug

30.
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.
Conrad, Joseph

31.
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

32.
The pomp of death is far more terrible than death itself.
Lee, Nathaniel

33.
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

34.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
Darrow, Clarence

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

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

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

Along with the lazy man... the dying man is the immoral man: the former, a subject that does not work; the latter, an object that no longer even makes itself available to be worked on by others.
Certeau, Michel De

39.
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

40.
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent, a day's march nearer home.

As virtuous men pass mildly away, and whisper to their souls to go, whilst some of their sad friends do say, the breath goes now, and some say no.
