Dying

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

~ 1 Corinthians 15:55.

Dying

Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.

~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (b. 1926)

Dying

Death not merely ends life, it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, snatched from the hazardous flux to which all things human are subject.

~ Hannah Arendt (1906-75)

Dying

Death never takes the wise man by surprise, He is always ready to go.

~ Jean de La Fontaine (1621-95)

Dying

He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.

~ Elias Canetti (1905-94)

Dying

Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.

~ Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)

Dying

Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.

~ Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

Dying

There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.

~ Samuel Butler (1835-1902

Dying

Death does determine life. . . . Once life is finished it acquires a sense; up to that point it has not got a sense; its sense is suspended and therefore ambiguous. However, to be sincere I must add that for me death is important only if it is not justified and rationalized by reason. For me death is the maximum of epicness and death.

~ Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-75)

Dying

The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.

~ Hermann Hesse (1877-1962)
