Famous quotes containing the word death:
“Life contracts and death is expected,
As in a season of autumn.
The soldier falls.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“The sole work and deed of universal freedom is therefore death, a death too which has no inner significance or filling, for what is negated is the empty point of the absolutely free self. It is thus the coldest and meanest of all deaths, with no more significance than cutting off a head of cabbage or swallowing a mouthful of water.”
—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (17701831)
“I dont know much about death and the sorriest lesson Ive learned is that words, my most trusted guardians against chaos, offer small comfort in the face of anyones dying.”
—Alison Hawthorne Deming (b. 1946)
