And since I’m in this gothic mood…

I decided to put some death-related quotes here, some are funny, some are cool, and some are…blah:

  • All men think all men mortal, but themselves.
    ~ ~ Edward Young
  • Men fear death, as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural
    fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.
    ~ ~ Francis Bacon
  • Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.
    ~ ~ Dion Boucicault
  • Our birth is nothing but our death begun, as tapers waste the moment
    they take fire.
    ~ ~ Edward Young
  • Death should not be seen as the end but as a very effective way to cut
    down expenses.
    ~ ~ Woody Allen
  • If it’s natural to kill why do men have to go into training to learn
    ~ ~ Joan Baez
  • What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a
    ~ ~ Richard Bach
  • Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is
    dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
    ~ ~ Bhagavad Gita
  • To every thing there is a season,
    and a time to every purpose under the heaven;
    A time to be born, and a time to die;
    a time to plant, and a time to pluck that which is planted.
    ~ ~ Bible – Ecclesiastes 3:1
  • There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as
    his own death.
    ~ ~ Samuel Butler
  • Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no
    criminal’s deed, however calculated can be compared. For there to be an
    equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned
    his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him and
    who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a
    monster is not encountered in private life.
    ~ ~ Albert Camus
  • Suicide sometimes proceeds from cowardice, but not always; for cowardice
    sometimes prevents it; since as many live because they are afraid to die, as
    die because they are afraid to live.
    ~ ~ Charles Caleb Colton "The
    Lacon" (1829)
  • Our life is made by the death of others.
    ~ ~
    Leonardo da Vinci
  • Death, the most dreaded of evils, is therefore of no concern to us; for
    while we exist death is not present, and when death is present we no longer
    ~ ~ Epicurus
  • Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves
    on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
    ~ ~ Susan Ertz "Anger in the
    Sky" (1943)
  • No neurotic harbours thoughts of suicide which are not murderous
    impulses against others redirected upon himself.
    ~ ~ Sigmund Freud "Beyond the
    Pleasure Principle" (1920)
  • Live as you will have wished to have lived when you are dying.
    ~ ~ Christian Furchtegott Gellert
  • Success has killed more men than bullets.
    ~ ~ Texas Guinan
  • It’s funny the way most people love the dead. Once you are dead, you are
    made for life.
    ~ ~ Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stone,
    December 2, 1976
  • So long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private
    citizens will occasionally kill theirs.
    ~ ~ Elbert Hubbard
  • Death is psychologically as important as birth . . . Shrinking away from
    it is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of
    its purpose.
    ~ ~ Carl Gustav Jung, January 16,
  • A man’s dying is more the survivors’ affair than his own.
    ~ ~ Thomas Mann
  • A suicide kills two people . . . that’s what it’s for.
    ~ ~ Arthur Miller "After the
  • We die only once, and for such a long time!
    ~ ~ Molière
  • The idea is to die young as late as possible.
    ~ ~ Ashley Montagu
  • Why do we kill people who are killing people to show that killing people
    is wrong?
    ~ ~ Holly Near
  • Even very young children need to be
    informed about dying. Explain the concept of death very carefully to your
    child. This will make threatening him with it much more effective. ~ ~ P. J. O’Rourke

  • 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.
    ~ ~ Marcel Proust
  • Boy, when you are dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do
    die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something.
    Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a
    bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday and all that crap. Who wants flowers
    when you are dead? Nobody.
    ~ ~ J. D. Salinger
  • Cowards die many times before their
    The valiant never taste death but once.
    Of all the wonders that I have yet heard,
    It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
    Seeing that death, a necessary end,
    Will come when it come.
    ~ ~ William Shakespeare "Julius

  • Assassination is the extreme form
    of censorship.
    ~ ~ George Bernard Shaw

  • Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in
    uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder.
    ~ ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley "A
    Declaration of Rights" (Dublin, 1812)
  • While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning
    how to die.
    ~ ~
    Leonardo da Vinci
  • It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless
    they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
    ~ ~ Voltaire "War"
  • From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is
    ~ ~ Edvard Munch
  • Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.
    ~ ~ Anais Nin
