Quotes about Death

 TimeFavorites

There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?

Woody Allen

If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do.

Angelina Jolie

My generation is on the way out, and each death I have felt as an abruption, a tearing away of part of myself. There will be no one like us when we are gone, but then there is no one like anyone else, ever. When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate - the genetic and neural fate - of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death.

Oliver Sacks

We are so scared about talking about death that we are letting people die in silence. It is good to talk publicly.

Javier Bardem

When I go, I`d just like everyone to say: "He lived longer than anyone I knew.".

Roger Moore

Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful
comes death on a strange hour
unannounced, unplanned for
like a scaring over-friendly guest you`ve
brought to bed?

The Doors

I do not fear death. I fear suffering. And I fear old age, though less so now that I am witnessing the tranquil and pleasant old age of my father. I am afraid of frailty, and of the absence of love. But death does not alarm me. It did not scare me when I was young, and I thought at the time that this was because it was such a remote prospect. But now, at sixty, the fear has yet to arrive. I love life, but life is also struggle, suffering, pain. I think of death as akin to a well-earned rest.

Our fear of death seems to me to be an error of evolution. Many animals react instinctively with terror and flight at the approach of a predator. It is a healthy reaction, one that allows them to escape from danger. But it`s a terror that lasts an instant, not something that remains with them constantly. Natural selection has produced these big apes with hypertrophic frontal lobes, with an exaggerated ability to predict the future. It`s a prerogative that`s certainly useful but one that has placed before us a vision of our inevitable death, and this triggers the instinct of terror and flight. Basically, I believe that the fear of death is the result of an accidental and clumsy interference between two distinct evolutionary pressures - the product of bad automatic connections in our brain rather than something that has any use or meaning.

Fearing the transition, being afraid of death, is like being afraid of reality itself; like being afraid of the sun.

The thought of death ought to be a lifelong occupation for every man. But this would be too great a stress for the human psyche. We have to live as if we were immortal.

Peter Noll

Death stays the same, but life becomes different.

Peter Noll

You do not immortalize the lost by writing about them. Language buries, but does not resurrect.

John Green

There`s a surfeit even of death.

Stephen King

The dead are orphans. No company but the silence like a moth`s wing.

Who cares if one more light goes out
In a sky of a million stars?
