    There is illusion, the way you see things now, thinking that there is a tomorrow, there is a today, there is time and that there is life and death. Those are just appearances

  • By Anonym

    ...the ten thousand things belong to one storehouse and life and death share the same body.

  • By Anonym

    The thought that really crushes us is the thought of the futility of life of which death is the visible manifestation.

  • By Anonym

    The whole motley confusion of acts, omissions, regrets and hopes which is the life of each one of us finds in death, not meaning or explanation, but an end.

  • By Anonym

    Things do fall apart. It is in their nature to do so. When we try to protect ourselves from the inevitability of change, we are not listening to the soul. We are listening to our fear of life and death, our lack of faith, our smaller ego's will to prevail. To listen to the soul is to stop fighting with life-to stop fighting when things fall apart, when they don't go our way, when we get sick, when we are betrayed or mistreated or misunderstood. To listen to the soul is to slow down, to feel deeply, to see ourselves clearly, to surrender to discomfort and uncertainty, and to wait.

  • By Anonym

    The scourge of life, and death's extreme disgrace, The smoke of hell,--that monster called Paine.

  • By Anonym

    To not be modest about it, you'll find that with only a couple of exceptions, most of the musicians that I've worked with have done their best work by far with me.

  • By Anonym

    To go back is nothing but death; but to go forward is fear of death and life everlasting beyond.

  • By Anonym

    Under any religion, the preestablished impersonal code transcends the right of the individual to explore, experience, and marvel at the mysteries of his own life and death. Religions introduce us not to God but to slavery. They deprive us of our freedom to explore our own souls and to discover the endless and wondrous possibilities presented to us by an infinite universe. And most often the method of religions is fear, not love. They demand blind obedience and often obedience to dreadful dogma.

  • By Anonym

    To be reborn hourly and daily in this life, we need to die — to give of ourselves wholly to the demands of the moment, so that we utterly "disappear." Thoughts of past, present, or future, of life and death, of this world and the next, are transcended in the superabundance of the now. Time and timelessness coalesce: this is the moment of eternity.

  • By Anonym

    Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

  • By Anonym

    Wars are times of intense technological transformation, because societies invest - sometimes with extensive borrowing - when and where matters of life and death are at stake.

  • By Anonym

    We are wrong in looking forward to death: in great measure it's past already.

  • By Anonym

    We are not cowed into timidity by death and life. Were we forced to rely on our own shabby resources we would be pitiful people in deed. But the awareness of Christ's present risenness persuades us that we are buoyed up and carried on by a life greater than our own.

  • By Anonym

    We know the surrealist solution: concrete irrationality, objective risk. Poetry is the conquest, the only possible conquest, of the 'supreme position', 'a certain position of the mind from where life and death, the real and the imaginary, the past and the future... cease to be perceived in a contradictory sense.'

  • By Anonym

    What, after all, are the world's deepest problems? They are what they always have been, the individual's problems—the meaning of life and death, the mastery of self, the quest for value and worth-whileness and freedom within, the transcending of loneliness, the longing for love and a sense of significance, and for peace. Society's problems are deep, but the individual's problems go deeper; Solzhenitsyn, Dostoyevsky, or Shakespeare will show us that, if we hesitate to take it from the Bible.

  • By Anonym

    When everything is at risk, good judgment, not haste, makes the difference between life and death. Panic is the enemy.

  • By Anonym

    When it comes time to die, you will not be afraid. By meditating, you will have already seen beyond life and death and you will see there is nothing to fear.

  • By Anonym

    We are God's partners in matters of life and death.

  • By Anonym

    We cannot learn freedom and responsibility within the confines of our own species. We cannot understand life and death and what they are for in exclusively human terms. Without that which is wild, the world becomes a cell block.

    • life and death quotes
  • By Anonym

    We use the word "God" as representative of that which is timeless, immortal and infinite, that which produces order, which holds together the nucleus of an atom, which gives us life and death, neither masculine nor feminine, not a person, beyond any comprehension.

  • By Anonym

    What we put into every moment is all we have. You can drug yourself to death or you can smoke yourself to death or eat yourself to death, or you can do everything right and be healthy and then get hit by a car. Life is so great, such a neat thing, and yet all during it we have to face death, which can make you nuts and depressed.

  • By Anonym

    What we eat is a matter of life and death.

  • By Anonym

    When I choose the picture of the cover of the book 'Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi', I thought, gosh, many people in Karachi may not like this image; I'm representing the city as a burning bus. But to the contrary, they loved it, because that is people's understanding of their own city, of going on with life no matter what.

  • By Anonym

    When St. Teresa of Avila says, 'Our life in this world is like a night in a second class hotel' I agree with her absolutely; and I think it's almost insulting to God and man to suggest that trivial events should give rise to deep concern on his part.

  • By Anonym

    Why is it when I’m the one shot, I’m a baby, but when it’s you, it’s a matter of life and death and national security? (Joe) Because I’m cuter in a short skirt. (Tee)

  • By Anonym

    You can change your world by changing your words... Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.

  • By Anonym

    Without fear I can acknowledge that the authentic Christian tension is not between life and death, but between life and life.

  • By Anonym

    When you meditate deeply, you will see beyond life and death. You will see that you can't die and you can't be reborn. You are existence itself.

  • By Anonym

    You know Americans are obsessed with life and death and rebirth, that's the American Cycle. You know, awakening, tragic, horrible death and then Phoenix rising from the ashes. That's the American story, again and again.

  • By Anonym

    Zen has no secrets other than seriously thinking about life and death.

  • By Anonym

    You won’t understand life and death until you’re ready to set aside any hope of understanding life and death and just live your life until you die.

  • By Anonym

    You will die not because you're ill, but because you're alive.

  • By Anonym

  • By Anonym

    A decent life, even a short life, will always be far better than an exceptionally long life lived in ruin.

  • By Anonym

    Allí estaba él, yendo raudo en pos de la muerte, poniendo en ello todo su empeño, mientras que aquel matrimonio no tenía ninguna prisa por morir. En el suelo del jardín estaban diseminados pétalos de flor de cerezo que el viento había transportado desde algún lugar. Era de día, pero la sala estaba sumida en una fresca penumbra mientras la blanca mano del anciano pasaba las páginas de la antología poética. Él y su esposa dedicaban el tiempo a tejer su muerte lentamente, como si estuvieran tejiendo un suéter, preparándose para la llegada del invierno. ¿De dónde procedía semejante serenidad?

    All paths lead to death, our premature sacrifice for future spawn (from Elixir)

  • By Anonym

    A maioria das pessoas não está pronta para a morte, a sua ou a dos outros. Ela as choca, as apavora. É como uma grande surpresa. Diabos, não deveria ser nunca. Levo a morte em meu bolso esquerdo. Ás vezes, tiro-a do bolso e falo com ela: 'Oi, gata, como vai? Quando virá me buscar? Vou estar pronto'.

  • By Anonym

    And as much as I wanted to, I knew I couldn't turn around, that to look at her directly was to violate the laws of her world and mine; she had come to me the only way she could, and our eyes met in the glass for a long still moment; but just as she seemed about to speak - with what seemed a combination of amusement, affection, exasperation - a vapor rolled between us and I woke up.

  • By Anonym

    ... and we held our breath, just for a moment, to see if the world had ended, but it hadn't, so we yawned and drank our champagne and carried on living, except for those of us who died, and everything continued such as before.

  • By Anonym

  • By Anonym

    and I pondered this curiously crazy life and the things I failed to grasp as a girl but thought I understood now as a softer, wiser woman I thought about life and death… I thought about tonight’s dinner menu too…

  • By Anonym

    ...and we go on living and breathing it into our lungs like fine dust. Until that time, I had understood death as something entirely separate from and independent of life. The hand of death is bound to take us, I had felt, but until the day it reaches out for us, it leaves us alone. This had seemed to me the simple, logical truth. Life is here, death is over there. I am here, not over there.

    And this I know: all these things that now, while we are still in the war, sink down in us like a stone, after the war shall waken again, and then shall begin the disentanglement of life and death.

  • By Anonym

    And the truth is only that we grow and die and wither even as this grass here.
