Death

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
Death Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Death

1.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

2.
I never think he is quite ready for another world who is altogether weary of this.
Hamilton, Hugh

3.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [1 Corinthians 15:55]
Bible

4.
That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
Cicero, Marcus T.

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.
'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

7.
If some persons died, and others did not die, death would be a terrible affliction.
La Bruyere, Jean De

8.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
Bronte, Emily

9.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.
Browne, Sir Thomas

10.
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.
Duffecy, James

11.
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

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.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
Donne, John

14.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.
Allen, Woody

15.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [1 Timothy 6:7]
Bible

16.
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

17.
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
Meredith, George

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

19.
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

20.
I guess that's how death works. It doesn't matter if we're ready or not. It just happens.
Randy K. Milholland

21.
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.
Foster, John W.

22.
The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.
Auden, W. H.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Euripides

26.
To you who have never died, may I say: Welcome to the world!
Barker, Clive

27.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
Montesquieu, Charles De

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, the rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Gray, Thomas

31.
The grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
Marvell, Andrew

32.
'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

33.
The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life.
Mann, Thomas

34.
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare

35.
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

36.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Woody Allen

37.
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.

38.
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
Chopra, Deepak

39.
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

40.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Steve Jobs

41.
The dead look so terribly dead when they're dead.
W. Somerset Maugham

42.
To stop sinning suddenly.
Hubbard, Elbert

43.
Is it sin to rush into the secret house of death, ere death dare come to us?
William Shakespeare

44.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death.
Publilius Syrus

45.
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.
Mcgovern, George

46.
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

47.
The difficulty about all this dying, is that you can't tell a fellow anything about it, so where does the fun come in?
James, Alice

48.
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

49.
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

50.
To leave is to die a little... one leaves behind a little of oneself at any hour, at any place.
Haracourt, Edmond
