A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
Oscar Wilde
After your death you will be what you were before your birth.
Arthur Schopenhauer
And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.
Dylan Thomas
Biography lends to death a new terror.
Oscar Wilde
Death (or its allusion) makes men precious and pathetic. They are moving because of their phantom condition; every act they execute may be their last; there is not a face that is not on the verge of dissolving like a face in a dream.
Jorge Luis Borges
Dying is not romantic, and death is not a game which will soon be over... Death is not anything... death is not... It's the absence of presence, nothing more... the endless time of never coming back... a gap you can't see, and when the wind blows through it, it makes not sound...
Tom Stoppard
He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend - provided, of course, that he really is dead.
Voltaire
Here, with whitened hair, desires failing, strength ebbing out of him, with the sun gone down and with only the serenity and the calm warning of the evening star left to him, he drank to Life, to all it had been, to what it was, to what it would be.
Sean O'Casey
I am almost sure to be blotted out by death, but sometimes I think it is not impossible that I may continue to live in some other manner after my physical death.... Or, as Hamlet wonders, what dreams will come when we leave this body?
Jorge Luis Borges
I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Winston Churchill
George Bernard Shaw
I'm not afraid of dying. To me dying is like getting out of one car and into another.
John Lennon
Life in a box is better than no life at all ... I expect.
Tom Stoppard
Men come and they go and they trot and they dance, and never a word about death. All well and good. Yet when death does come - to them, their wives, their children, their friends - cathcing them unawares and unprepared, then what storms of passion overwhelm them, what cries what fury, what despair!
Michel de Montaigne
Now, now my good man, this is no time for making enemies.
Voltaire
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
William Shakespeare
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
William Shakespeare
The difficulty, my friends, is not in avoiding death, but in avoiding unrighteousness; for that runs faster than death.
Socrates
The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it.
Ernest Hemingway
There is but one freedom, to put oneself right with death. After that everything is possible.
Albert Camus
