10 Quotes on Death From Your Favorite Writers

Death and taxes, that’s what they say. But for many of us death is uncertain and hard to reckon with so I’ve gathered some quotes to help us all understand it a little better.

“The Stranger” by Albert Camus

“Since we’re all going to die, it’s obvious that when and how don’t matter.”

“East of Eden” by John Steinbeck

“It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world.”

“Doctor Zhivago” by Boris Pasternak 

”What is history? Its beginning is that of the centuries of systematic work devoted to the solution of the enigma of death, so that death itself may eventually be overcome. That is why people write symphonies, and why they discover mathematical infinity and electromagnetic waves.”

“Suttree” by Cormac McCarthy 

“How surely are the dead beyond death. Death is what the living carry with them. A state of dread, like some uncanny foretaste of a bitter memory. But the dead do not remember and nothingness is not a curse. Far from it.”

“Howards End” by E.M. Forster 

“Death destroys a man: the idea of Death saves him.”

“The Premature Burial” by Edgar Allan Poe

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”

“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” by JK Rowling 

“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

“The Last Continent” by Terry Pratchett

“It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it’s called Life.”

“Invisible Monsters” by Chuck Palahniuk 

“If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character…Would you slow down? Or speed up?”

“Les Miserables” by Victor Hugo

“It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.”
