dying

A Quote by Peter Clothier on death, dying, life, breathing, and grief

So what could I do? One thing that I have learned is that I can breathe. It sounds simple, even simple-minded, but I tend to forget too easily that at every moment I'm reaffirming life with this most basic act.

A Quote by arundhati roy on alive, live, dream, dreaming, death, dying, and dead

The only dream worth having, I told her, is to dream that you will live while you're alive and die only when you're dead.

A Quote by Nastassja Kinski on waiting, death, life, and dying

But when it really happens I'm very fascinated, I'm waiting for the moment, because the moment where life abandons you and death steps in, that moment must be fantastic, no?

A Quote by Elizabeth Kubler Ross on strength, death, and dying

Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful, but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body.

A Quote by John Muir on death, dying, nature, unity, wholeness, harmony, universe, and earth

On no subject are our ideas more warped and pitiable than on death...Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights. All is divine harmony.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

A Quote by John Muir on death, exploration, dying, happiness, gratitude, and life

I never have held death in contempt, though in the course of my explorations I have oftentimes felt that to meet one's fate on a noble mountain, or in the heart of a glacier, would be blessed as compared with death from disease, or from some shabby lowland accident. But the best death, quick and crystal-pure, set so glaringly open before us, is hard enough to face, even though we feel gratefully sure that we have already had happiness enough for a dozen lives.

Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.

A Quote by Osho on death, dying, fear, self, enlightenment, god, holy, and being

Die – you will have to die. But die gracefully. I am not saying die like a stoic, I am not saying die like a very controlled man. No, I'm saying die gracefully, beautifully, as if a friend is coming, knocks at your door, and you are happy. And you embrace the friend and invite him in, and you have been waiting for him so long....

If you can love death you become deathless; if you can understand non-being then your being becomes the very ground of being-hood, the very ground of God. If you can love non-being then nothing can destroy you, you have transcended time and space. Then you have become one with the total, and this is what holiness is – to become whole is to be holy.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on death, dying, self, ego, and freedom

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to "die before you die" — and find that there is no death.
