If there were dreams to sell, what would you buy? (Quote by - Thomas Lovell Beddoes)

A man's dying is more the survivors' affair than his own. (Quote by - Thomas Mann)

The idea is to die young as late as possible. (Quote by - Ashley Montagu)

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life. (Quote by - John Muir)

From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity. (Quote by - Edvard Munch)

To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death of one's own free choice, death at the proper time, with a clear head and with joyfulness, consummated in the midst of children and witnesses: so that an actual leave-taking is possible while he who is leaving is still there. (Quote by - Friedrich Nietzsche)

If man were immortal he could be perfectly sure of seeing the day when everything in which he had trusted should betray his trust, and, in short, of coming eventually to hopeless misery. He would break down, at last, as every good fortune, as every dynasty, as every civilization does. In place of this we have death. (Quote by - Charles Sanders Peirce)

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. (Quote by - Albert Pike)

We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance. (Quote by - Marcel Proust)

God is becoming bitter, he envies man his mortality. (Quote by - Jacques Rigaut)

We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by standing in awe of death. (Quote by - David Sarnoff)

They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person. (Quote by - Arthur Schopenhauer)

The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity. (Quote by - Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

My situation is a solemn one. Life is offered to me on condition of eating beefsteaks. But death is better than cannibalism. My will contains directions for my funeral, which will be followed not by mourning coaches, but by oxen, sheep, flocks of poultry, and a small traveling aquarium of live fish, all wearing white scarf's in honor of the man who perished rather than eat his fellow creatures. (Quote by - George Bernard Shaw)

While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil. (Quote by - John Taylor)

I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

All say, 'How hard it is that we have to die' - a strange complaint to come from the mouths of people who have had to live. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die. (Quote by - Leonardo Da Vinci)

A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age; he dies of being a man. (Quote by - Percival Arland Ussher)

Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it. (Quote by - Alice Walker)

Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives. (Quote by - A. Sachs)
