We have art in order not to die of the truth.
Close to a billion people - one-eighth of the world's population - still live in hunger. Each year 2 million children die through malnutrition. This is happening at a time when doctors in Britain are warning of the spread of obesity. We are eating too much while others starve.
Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can't ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment's notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow - that's vulnerability.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Old friends die on you, and they're irreplaceable. You become dependent.
If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.
Robert H. Schuller
If you don't die of thirst, there are blessings in the desert. You can be pulled into limitlessness, which we all yearn for, or you can do the beauty of minutiae, the scrimshaw of tiny and precise.

Ali ibn Abi Talib

I know from personal experience how damaging it can be to live with bitterness and unforgiveness. I like to say it's like taking poison and hoping your enemy will die. And it really is that harmful to us to live this way.
It is better to die than to preserve this life by incurring disgrace. The loss of life causes but a moment's grief, but disgrace brings grief every day of one's life.
While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness.
Let us endeavor so to live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
The leading cause of death for girls 15 to 19 worldwide is not accident or violence or disease; it is complications from pregnancy. Girls under 15 are up to five times as likely to die while having children than are women in their 20s, and their babies are more likely to die as well.
Live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse.
A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
Live like you'll die tomorrow, work like you don't need the money, and dance like nobody's watching.
In war, you win or lose, live or die - and the difference is just an eyelash.
The die is cast.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
I don't want to die in a car accident. When I die it'll be a glorious day. It'll probably be a waterfall.
Work as though you would live forever, and live as though you would die today. Go another mile!
I am not going to die, I'm going home like a shooting star.
