Famous quotes containing the word dying:

    When the shadow of death blots out my joy
    And erases the face of the sun
    Give me strength to endure, hope to believe
    That living and dying are one.
    William L. Wallace (20th century)

    The dying man doesn’t struggle much and he isn’t much afraid. As his alkalies give out he succumbs to a blest stupidity. His mind fogs. His will power vanishes. He submits decently. He scarcely gives a damn.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    “If little planned is little sinned
    But little need the grave distress.
    What’s dying but a second wind?
    How but in zig-zag wantonness
    Could trumpeter Michael be so brave?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
