Death Quotes

Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.

William Cowper

Walt Whitman

Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism, and a battle hymn for the people's unity against the great enemy of mankind: the United States of America. Wherever death may surprise us, let it be welcome, provided that this, our battle cry, may have reached some receptive ear, that another hand may be extended to wield our weapons, and that other men be ready to intone our funeral dirge with the staccato singing of the machine guns and new battle cries of war and victory.

Ernesto Che Guevara

Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.

Martin Luther King Jr

You and I Have so much love That it Burns like a fire, In which we bake a lump of clay Molded into a figure of you And a figure of me. Then we take both of them, And break them into pieces, And mix the pieces with water, And mold again a figure of you, And a figure of me. I am in your clay. You are in my clay. In life we share a single quilt. In death we will share one bed.

There is tonic in the things that men do not love to hear; and there is damnation in the things that wicked men love to hear.

And where free speech is stopped miasma is bred, and death comes fast.

Henry Ward Beecher

Law should be like death, which spares no one.
