Death quotes

Death is neither the best nor worst loss we can experience in life. While still live, death is the last loss of something you loved. It’s also stated that your life flashes in front of your eyes before you die. This is absolutely true, it is called life itself. But as we age, our outlook on life changes, and we begin to lose that sparkle in our lives that once gave us pleasure. Death simply becomes a part of the aging process.

Thankfully, there are many ways to deal with the changing times and the aging process. Some use medications, others pray and still others try to remain positive and look at the bright side. These are the types of things we learned from our parents and grandparents. Some would try to live forever by finding the fountain of youth, while others would simply turn their backs on death.

In those quotes, William seems to be saying that as he ages, he will understand the true meaning of life, and his place in the grand scheme of things. He’ll understand that he is merely a vessel waiting to be used, until the time comes when he will no longer be a vessel. In these quotes, he is trying to make himself more aware of his mortality, while also hoping for the best possible outcome for his earthly life.

The best part about these quotes is the way they let death have a positive effect on us. Instead of clinging to life, which is what many would do when they are truly scared of dying, these quotes help us to leave behind our fears and let life have a positive effect on us. Instead of clinging to death, we are able to let go of it, and instead live on.

When we are faced with the sudden loss of a loved one or a friend, we can greatly benefit from the wisdom provided by these quotes. The first thing we learn is that death is not evil. It’s just a fact of life, so we should never let it discourage us from pursuing our dreams and goals. In fact, the more we push ourselves away from death, the stronger we grow as people. Sooner or later, death will be a thing of the past, when we are no longer around to experience it. This wisdom also provides support to those who are going through a difficult time, since they can learn that even death cannot stand before the power of love.

Another thing these quotes teach us is how fear can hamper our efforts. Instead of putting up a fight against death, as humans, we allow fear to overcome us and prevent us from pursuing our goals and dreams. In one quote, «In the beginning, when fear was not yet so common, man had the advantage. But now that it is common, man has to fight with his innermost fears.»

Finally, we can learn that forgiveness is the key to dealing with death. The giver of the quotes, George Souviron, writes, «It is better to forgive than to rage; for if we learn to forgive those that offend us, then we become immune to the anguish, sorrow and pain that are the effects of offending others.» He goes on to say that forgiveness is the key to letting go of our past mistakes, which in turn opens us up to building a better future for us and our loved ones. These quotes about dying and living show how much science and medicine have advanced in the last few years. People are now more aware of the side effects of some behaviors, which in the past were looked down upon.

By looking at death quotes online and reading them, we can gain a great deal of insight into what our loved ones need and want. We can also gain insight into how best to move forward after the loss of our loved one. Furthermore, we can come to terms with the reality that death is just a fact of life that we will have to face. It’s why so many of the great poets wrote about death, because it was such a fact of life for them.

Lemony Snicket
“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”
― Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

Kinky Friedman
“My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ Falsely yours”
― Kinky Friedman

Hunter S. Thompson
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way.

This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

William Shakespeare
“To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.–Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember’d!”
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
