Dead Quotes

Science is a cemetery of dead ideas.

Miguel de Unamuno

He who died at Azan sends This to comfort all his friends: Faithful friends! It lies I know Pale and white and cold as snow; And ye say, 'Abdallahs dead!' Weeping at the feet and head.

Sir Edwin Arnold

Why, being dead, do you rely on yourself? You were able to die of your own accord; you cannot come back to life of your own accord.

Let us send up our sighs to him; as for ourselves, let us strive with our wills to earn merit by our prayers.

A life without love in it is like a heap of ashes upon a deserted hearth, with the fire dead, the laughter stilled and the light extinguished.

Frank Tebbets

I feel like one / Who treads alone / Some banquet-hall deserted, / Whose lights are fled, / Whose garlands dead / And all but he departed!

Thomas Moore

There are four types of persons, the dead, who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist, independent and self-directed, the sick, who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the unusual source of succor, the dull, who know that God is the eternal companion and watchman, but who remember it only off and on when the idea is potent and powerful, and lastly the healthy, who have steady belief in the Lord and who live in His Comforting Creative Presence always.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba
