Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Do not go gentle into the good night. Old age should burn and rage at close of day.
Except for the young or very happy, I can't say I am sorry for anyone who dies.
When it comes to my own turn to lay my weapons down, I shall do so with thankfulness and fatigue, and whatever be my destiny afterward, I shall be glad to lie down with my fathers in honor. It is human at least, if not divine.
If I had my life over again I should form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practice, as it were, the remembrance of death. There is no other practice which so intensifies life. Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life. Without an ever-present sense of death life is insipid. You might as well live on the whites of eggs.
The hour of departure has arrived and we go our ways; I to die, and you to live. Which is better? Only God knows.
How wonderful is death! Death and his brother sleep.
I want to be all used up when I die.
Dying is a troublesome business: there is pain to be suffered, and it wrings one's heart; but death is a splendid thing --a warfare accomplished, a beginning all over again, a triumph. You can always see that in their faces.
Nothing in his life became him like the leaving it.
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.
All that live must die, passing through nature to eternity.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Most people would rather die than think: many do.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back into the same box.
Our last garment is made without pockets.
Annihilation has no terrors for me, because I have already tried it before I was born --a hundred million years --and I have suffered more in an hour, in this life, than I remember to have suffered in the whole hundred million years put together. There was a peace, a serenity, an absence of all sense of responsibility, an absence of worry, an absence of care, grief, perplexity; and the presence of a deep content and unbroken satisfaction in that hundred million years of holiday which I look back upon with a tender longing and with a grateful desire to resume, when the opportunity comes.
