Death Quotes

A proper autobiography is a death-bed confession. A true man finds so much work to do that he has no time to contemplate his yesterdays; for to-day and to-morrow are here, with their impatient tasks. The world is so busy, too, that it cannot afford to study any man\'s unfinished work; for the end may prove it a failure, and the world needs masterpieces.

Mary Antin

Idealism and mercy are human terms and human concepts.

Benjamin Franklin

My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don`t relax because I don`t know how. I don`t want to know how. Life is too short to relax.
