Coffin Quotations

Falling in love is the best way to kill your heart because then it's not yours anymore. It's laid in a coffin, waiting to be cremated.
Ville Valo

A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.
H. L. Mencken

Ben Shapiro

At my funeral, if one said, 'Nick was a generous person,' trust me I won't be doing cartwheels in my coffin. Recognition from people is never and never will be a goal. Some people strive for that respect or honor. Living a life to just reach for the position and status is vanity and sin.
Nick Vujicic

From the cradle to the coffin underwear comes first.
