Famous quotes containing the word death:

    To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise: for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know?
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)

    Your father was ever virtuous, and holy men at their death have good inspirations.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There’s nothing wrong in suffering, if you suffer for a purpose. Our revolution didn’t abolish danger or death. It simply made danger and death worthwhile.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)
