Suicide Quotes

The weapon of suicide bombing is so desperate that you aren't even left with the possibility of taking revenge or punishing anyone; the terrorist is killed along with his victims, his blood mixing with theirs.

A. B. Yehoshua

Science commits suicide when it adopts a creed.

Thomas Henry Huxley

Suicide is man's way of telling God, "You can't fire me - I quit.

Bill Maher

All healthy men have thought of their own suicide

Albert Camus

Suicide is man's way of telling God, "You can't fire me - I quit."

Bill Maher

One should never criticize his own work except in a fresh and hopeful mood. The self-criticism of a tired mind is suicide.

Charles Horton Cooley

In advertising, not to be different is virtual suicide.

William Bernbach

If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.

Mahatma Gandhi

Not respecting yourself, is the same as committing suicide at a slow rate.

Unknown

Like all twenty-one-year-old poets, I thought I would be dead by thirty, and Sylvia Plath had not set a helpful example. For a while there, you were made to feel that, if a poet and female, you could not really be serious about it unless you'd made a least one suicide attempt. So I felt I was running out of time.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

Terrorism thrives on administrative violence and injustice; that is the only atmosphere in which it can thrive and grow. It sometimes follows the example of indiscriminate violence from above; it sometimes, though very rarely, sets it from below. But the power above which follows the example from below is on the way to committing suicide.

Sri Aurobindo

It is suicide to be abroad. But what it is to be at home, ... what it is to be at home? A lingering dissolution.

Samuel Beckett

Suicide, moreover, was at that time in vogue in Paris: what more suitable key to the mystery of life for a skeptical society?

Honor de Balzac

Two armies at death-grips that is one great army committing suicide.

Henri Barbusse

Most of all I was numb, but there were moments when the pain cut through like a shard of broken glass. I began to understand how despair led people to just cash it in; how suicide wasn't just an option but a rational option.

Joseph Robinette

I was born about a quarter of a mile from where we are sitting now and I was here in London during the Blitz. And every night I went down into the shelter. 500 people killed, my brother was killed, my friends were killed. And when the Charter of the UN was read to me, I was a pilot coming home in a troop ship: 'We the peoples of the United Nations determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind.' That was the pledge my generation gave to the younger generation and you tore it up. And it's a war crime that's been committed in Iraq, because there is no moral difference between a stealth bomber and a suicide bomber. Both kill innocent people for political reasons.

Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn

There are few situations in life that cannot be honourably settled, and without loss of time, either by suicide, a bag of gold, or by thrusting a despised antagonist over the edge of a precipice upon a dark night.

Ernest Brammah Smith

The suicide bomber is an explosion of a contradiction in its paradox, victim and victimizer, yin and yang, two sides of the coin, fire bomb and fire extinguisher, prosecutor and defendant, hangman and hanged.

Giannina Braschi

In war, science has proven itself an evil genius; it has made war more terrible than it ever was before. Man used to be content to slaughter his fellowmen on a single plane the earth's surface. Science has taught him to go down into the water and shoot up from below and to go up into the clouds and shoot down from above, thus making the battlefield three times a bloody as it was before; but science does not teach brotherly love. Science has made war so hellish that civilization was about to commit suicide; and now we are told that newly discovered instruments of destruction will make the cruelties of the late war seem trivial in comparison with the cruelties of wars that may come in the future.

William Jennings Bryan
