Death

Sleep after Toil, Port after stormy Seas,
Ease after War, Death after Life, does greatly please.

Edmund Spenser

2

I'm not afraid of death, but I resent it. I think it's unfair and irritating. Every time I see something beautiful, I not only want to return to it, but it makes me want to see other beautiful things. I know I'm not going to get to all the places I want to go.

Viggo Mortensen

2

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It's a death trap.

Anthony Hopkins

2

Death is the ugly fact which Nature has to hide, and she hides it well.

Alexander Smith

3

Death Row inmates are almost twice as expensive to house each year as other inmates. Death penalty trials are much costlier than trials where execution is not a potential punishment and consume more time from judges, public defenders, and other legal personnel.

Reid Hoffman

2

I offer neither pay, nor quarters, nor food; I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me.

Giuseppe Garibaldi

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

Isaac Asimov

1

It is not tolerable, it is not possible, that from so much death, so much sacrifice and ruin, so much heroism, a greater and better humanity shall not emerge.

Charles de Gaulle

1

A tragedy need not have blood and death; it's enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy.

Jean Racine

1

Drown in a cold vat of whiskey? Death, where is thy sting?

W. C. Fields

Death — quotes and aphorisms

The poets' scrolls will outlive the monuments of stone. Genius survives; all else is claimed by death.

Edmund Spenser

2

Being an old maid is like death by drowning, a really delightful sensation after you cease to struggle.

Edna Ferber

1

There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.

Ernest Hemingway

1

Love has no age, no limit; and no death.

John Galsworthy

1

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.

Arthur Schopenhauer

3

No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.

Plato

3

The death penalty is discriminatory and does not do anything about crime.

Bobby Scott

Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

1

Our criminal justice system is fallible. We know it, even though we don't like to admit it. It is fallible despite the best efforts of most within it to do justice. And this fallibility is, at the end of the day, the most compelling, persuasive, and winning argument against a death penalty.

Eliot Spitzer

1

There is but One God. His name is Truth; He is the Creator. He fears none; he is without hate. He never dies; He is beyond the cycle of births and death. He is self-illuminated. He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru. He was True in the beginning; He was True when the ages commenced and has ever been True. He is also True now.

Guru Nanak
