Humor has to surprise us; otherwise, it isn't funny. It's a death knell for a writer to be labeled a humorist because then it's not a surprise anymore.
The desire to die was my one and only concern; to it I have sacrificed everything, even death.
Emile M. Cioran
I know I'm drinking myself to a slow death, but then I'm in no hurry.
Death is the easiest of all things after it, and the hardest of all things before it.
I hate to say this, but I'll repeat it: After death, all we know that you do is stink.
After the writer's death, reading his journal is like receiving a long letter.
Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.
There should be weeping at a man's birth, not at his death.
Charles de Montesquieu
Jesus' sinless life was given as a gift to the world - the ultimate gift. Some would receive Him, and others wouldn't. Nonetheless, He continues to be our gift, and His life and death makes it possible for His children to receive eternal life with Him. That's a reason to give God glory.
Life is doubt, and faith without doubt is nothing but death.
Miguel de Unamuno
Death consists, indeed, in a repeated process of unrobing, or unsheathing.

To be immortal is commonplace; except for man, all creatures are immortal, for they are ignorant of death; what is divine, terrible, incomprehensible, is to know that one is immortal.
Jorge Luis Borges

I think that we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death, unless they so imminently threaten immediate interference with the lawful and pressing purposes of the law that an immediate check is required to save the country.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The wages of sin are death, but by the time taxes are taken out, it's just sort of a tired feeling.
Death is a sniper. It strikes people you love, people you like, people you know - it's everywhere. You could be next. But then you turn out not to be. But then again, you could be.
You should celebrate the end of a love affair as they celebrate death in New Orleans, with songs, laughter, dancing and a lot of wine.
My mother was the sweetest lady who ever lived on this planet, but if you tried to tell her that Jesus wasn't a Christian, she would stomp you to death.
Death is an endless night so awful to contemplate that it can make us love life and value it with such passion that it may be the ultimate cause of all joy and all art.
Only those who spread treachery, fire, and death out of hatred for the prosperity of others are undeserving of pity.
We do not choose the day of our birth nor may we choose the day of our death, yet choice is the sovereign faculty of the mind.

Pearl S. Buck
Martin Luther King, Jr.
