Death - Quotes

It is no exaggeration when a human speaks the words ‘I’m dying’. Because it’s the honest, hurtful truth. Every human lives to die. In the end, everyone lies at rest. By the minute we are all slowly getting closer to dying. Therefore, live the minutes and hours of your days as if they’re your last. - Alessia Ng

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. - Steve Jobs

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. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. - Steve Jobs

Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful, but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body. - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

For death is but a passing phase of Life; a change of dress, a disrobing; a birth into the unborn again; a commencing where we ended; a starting where we stopped to rest; a crossroad of Eternity; a giving up of something, to possess all things. The end of the unreal, the beginning of the real. - Edwin Leibfreed

When we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heart-breaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings. - Sogyal Rinpoche

When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. - Tecumseh

I don’t think anybody’s necessarily ready for death. You can only hope that when it approaches, you feel like you’ve said what you wanted to say. Nobody wants to go out in mid-sentence. - Johnny Depp

The seeds of Death are sown in us when we begin to live, and grow up till, like rampant weeds, they choke the tender flower of life. - Samuel Richardson

There are always potential rogues who, seeing an opportunity, will flirt with death and then, at the very last moment, will be surprised to have met with it so easily. - Pierre Magnan

Without death in the world, existence in it would soon become, through over-population, the most frightful of curses. - Christian Nestell Bovee

You can be mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can swear and curse the fates. But when it comes to the end, you have to let go. - Benjamin Button

You cannot avoid mortality. But you can choose your way of meeting it. And that is the most that any man can hope for. - David Gerrold
