#7. A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. #Quote by Nazr Mohammed
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Andy Mulligan
#8. I met Jose Angelico the way I meet many of my customers. I have a workshop on the cemetery road, just past the coffin makers. I specialize in the small, simple stone. I am very aware that my clients have next to nothing, and renting the grave has often taken most of their money. So I modify and modify and get down to the very lowest cost. The dead, however, must have that stone: the reminder, the eternal reminder, that this man, this woman, this child---existed. On some of the graves the name is marked in paint, or even pen, and everyone knows how sad that is. Make something out of stone, I say, and noone touches the grave.The poor are not buried, you see. There is not enough ground here any more, so in the Naravo they build upwards. The graves of the poor are concrete boxes, each just big enough for the coffin. They go up and up---in some parts twenty boxes high. A funeral here is to slide the coffin in and watch the sealing of the compartment. Part of my service is that I cement the stone that I've made into place, and thus seal the chamber. #Quote by Andy Mulligan
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Ross Macdonald
#9. The tea tasted like a clear dark dripping from the past. My grandmother came back with it, in crisp black funeral silks, #Quote by Ross Macdonald
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Betty McDonald
#10. There was a Sears, Roebuck catalogue painfully twisted and shellacked and tied with a red cord. The white card beneath it said, An inexpensive doorstop." ... There were catsup bottles made into bud vases, closthespins decorated with crepe paper butterflies for use as curtin hold-backers, crocheted bags for silverware, bouquets of crepe paper and velvet flowers, an enormous funeral set piece of white organdy gardenias and dark green oilcloth leaves with REST IN PEACE spelled out in white pipe cleaners, embroidered pictures, burned wood match boxes, and fancy pillows by the hundreds. The pillows embraced every sentiment from FRANKY AND JOHNNY WERE LOVERS in black beads on a cerise satin background to the Twenty-Third Psalm in white on black velvet. It was an impressive exhibit of what loneliness can do to people. #Quote by Betty McDonald
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Erma Bombeck
#11. I have a hat. It is graceful and feminine and give me a certain dignity, as if I were attending a state funeral or something. Someday I may get up enough courage to wear it, instead of carrying it. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Adi Alsaid
#12. Panic strikes me when I think about a sentence that isn't given the chance to live because I don't have a pen in my hand or am not sitting near enough to someone familiar to speak it to. Especially if it's a particularly good sentence, a sentence with truth or beauty or humor or sadness to it. The best ones always take you by surprise. They sneak into your head while you're walking down the aisles at a supermarket, or flat-out assault you when you're at your grandmother's funeral, and you have to scramble to give the thought life before it's gone forever. Cocktail napkins, palms, text messages sent to yourself. #Quote by Adi Alsaid
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Alistair Cross
#13. I'd like to be a handsome corpse. At my funeral, I'd like people to look in my coffin and say, "Wow. He's so handsome when he's dead!"

I guess it'd be kind of okay, too, if they made my books required reading in schools or something, but as far as leaving a legacy goes, I just want to be the hottest cadaver in the graveyard. #Quote by Alistair Cross
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Donna Tartt
#14. The value of Greek prose composition, he said, was not that it gave one any particular facility in the language that could not be gained as easily by other methods but that if done properly, off the top of one's head, it taught one to think in Greek. One's thought patterns become different, he said, when forced into the confines of a rigid and unfamiliar tongue. Certain common ideas become inexpressible; other, previously undreamt-of ones spring to life, finding miraculous new articulation. By necessity, I suppose, it is difficult for me to explain in English exactly what I mean. I can only say that an incendium is in its nature entirely different from the feu with which a Frenchman lights his cigarette, and both are very different from the stark, inhuman pur that the Greeks knew, the pur that roared from the towers of Ilion or leapt and screamed on that desolate, windy beach, from the funeral pyre of Patroklos.
Pur: that one word contains for me the secret, the bright, terrible clarity of ancient Greek. How can I make you see it, this strange harsh light which pervades Homer's landscapes and illumines the dialogues of Plato, an alien light, inarticulable in our common tongue? Our shared language is a language of the intricate, the peculiar, the home of pumpkins and ragamuffins and bodkins and beer, the tongue of Ahab and Falstaff and Mrs. Gamp; and while I find it entirely suitable for reflections such as these, it fails me utterly when I attempt to describe in it what #Quote by Donna Tartt

#15. If you have the least doubt about it, do not marry. #Quote by John Lubbock
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Frances Hardinge
#16. I did not see your mother at the funeral,' she said, following the thought. 'She stopped coming to them after her own,' Paul answered simply. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#17. Do you think he would have wanted you to commit suttee?"

"What is that?"

"A Hindu practice in which a widow is expected to throw herself on her husband's burning funeral pyre. Her suicide is considered as proof of her devotion to him."

"What if the wife dies first? Does the husband do the same thing?"

Shaw threw her a mildly taunting grin. "No, he re-marries."

"I should have known," Livia said. "Men always manage to arrange things for their own benefit. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Peter Utley
#18. An obituary should be an exercise in contemporary history, not a funeral oration. #Quote by Peter Utley
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#19. Crucial element of Greek education. In the city-state of Sparta, the most extreme example of this focus, young boys considered weak at birth were abandoned to die. The rest were sent to grueling boot camps, where they were toughened into Spartan soldiers from an early age. Around the fifth century BC, some Greek city-states, most notably Athens, began to experiment with a new form of government. "Our constitution is called a democracy," the Athenian statesman Pericles noted in his funeral oration, "because power is in the hands not of a minority but of the #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Nancy Reagan
#20. People don't understand that all presidents, the minute they become president, get a knock at the door. And there's a man there saying, 'Let's talk about your funeral.' At the time I thought, God, that's a terrible thing. Later on, I thought it was pretty wise. #Quote by Nancy Reagan
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Robbin Crosby
#21. When I die, nobody cry at my funeral, in fact let's all have a party; I've lived the life of ten men. I lived all my dreams and more. #Quote by Robbin Crosby
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by John Lubbock
#22. Time is a trust, and for every minute of it you will have to account. #Quote by John Lubbock
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by J.D. Salinger
#23. When you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Clarence Darrow
#24. Robert G. Ingersoll was a great man. a wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, one of the great men of the earth -- and yet we have no right to bow down to his memory simply because he was great. Great orators, great soldiers, great lawyers, often use their gifts for a most unholy cause. We meet to pay a tribute of love and respect to Robert G. Ingersoll because he used his matchless power for the good of man.

{Darrow's eulogy for Ingersoll at his funeral} #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by John Lubbock
#25. It is sad, indeed, to see how man wastes his opportunities. How many could be made happy, with the blessings which are recklessly wasted or thrown away. #Quote by John Lubbock
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Craig Shirley
#26. The funeral of Andrew Jackson at the Hermitage was flawed when his pet parrot had to be removed because it kept squawking out the profanity Jackson had taught the foul fowl.20 #Quote by Craig Shirley
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Rabia Al Basri
#27. Dream Fable

I saw myself in a wide green garden, more beautiful than I could begin to understand. In this garden was a young girl. I said to her, "How wonderful this place is!"

"Would you like to see a place even more wonderful than this?" she asked.

"Oh yes," I answered. Then taking me by the hand, she led me on until we came to a magnificent palace, like nothing that was ever seen by human eyes. The young girl knocked on the door, and someone opened it. Immediately both of us were flooded with light.

Only Allah knows the inner meaning of the maidens we saw living there. Each one carried in her hand a serving-tray filled with light. The young girl asked the maidens where they were going, and they answered her, "We are looking for someone who was drowned in the sea, and so became a martyr. She never slept at night, not one wink! We are going to rub funeral spices on her body."

"Then rub some on my friend here," the young girl said.

"Once upon a time," said the maidens, "part of this spice and the fragrance of it clung to her body -- but then she shied away."

Quickly the young girl let go of my hand, turned, and said to me:

"Your prayers are your light;
Your devotion is your strength;
Sleep is the enemy of both.
Your life is the only opportunity that life can give you.
If you ignore it, if you waste it,
You will only turn to dust."

Then the young girl di #Quote by Rabia Al Basri

#28. On the day of his mother's funeral, to the boy I loved more than I had ever loved
anything or anyone, I said, Go to hell. #Quote by Jenny Han

Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Brianna Wiest
#30. Nobody cries at a funeral because the world will be missing out on another pretty face. They cry because the world is missing another heart, another soul, another person. Don't wait until it's too late to focus on what will actually matter: creating something that lasts far beyond your body. #Quote by Brianna Wiest
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by John Lubbock
#31. Life is a great gift, and as we reach years of discretion, most of us naturally ask ourselves what should be the main object of our existence. #Quote by John Lubbock
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Zee Edgell
#32. Anyone could spare the time, stopped whatever they were doing to watch the funeral go by. It was a custom. It was important to know who had died, under what circumstances, to whom the person was related, and who the mourners were following the hearse, and why they felt the need to attend this particular funeral. There were few events that commanded the total attention of the community as much as a passing funeral. Its size was commented upon, and the life story of the deceased, whatever was known of it, whispered from person to person. It was more than a funeral they watched. In a way, it was a small lesson in community history, and everyone, for those minutes, was a diligent scholar. #Quote by Zee Edgell
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by John Lubbock
#33. Great battles are really won before they are actually fought. To control our passions we must govern our habits, and keep watch over ourselves in the small details of everyday life. #Quote by John Lubbock
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#34. I should like to abolish funerals; the time to mourn a person is at his birth, not his death. #Quote by Baron De Montesquieu
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Neil Gaiman
#35. So when the big companies come in they buy the name of the company, they pay for the funeral directors to stay on, they create the appearance of diversity. But that is merely the tip of the gravestone. In reality, they are as local as Burger King. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Dana Milbank
#36. President Bush is often out there talking about the importance of staying the course, and about the sacrifice, but he has not attended a funeral of a soldier who has fallen in Iraq. #Quote by Dana Milbank
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#37. Crowned with leaves of the laurel. In England the Poet Laureate is an officer of the sovereign's court, acting as dancing skeleton at every royal feast and singing-mute at every royal funeral. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by John Green
#38. Can't wear it to the opera," said the Colonel, almost smiling. "Can't wear it to a funeral. Can't use it to hang myself. It's a bit useless, as ties go. #Quote by John Green
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#39. Once, when I was little, I asked her if she'd cried when my father had fallen to his death.
At the funeral? I mean, the burial?
No, I did not.
Because you weren't sad?
Because it was nobody's business if I was. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Tea Obreht
#40. It's a sad thing to see, because as far as I know, this man Gavo had done nothing to deserve being shot in the back of the head at his own funeral. Twice. #Quote by Tea Obreht
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Huston Smith
#41. Heaven and earth are my inner and outer coffins. The sun, moon, and stars are my drapery, and the whole creation my funeral procession. What more do I want? #Quote by Huston Smith
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#42. We are not content to pass away entirely from the scenes of our delight; we would leave, if but in gratitude, a pillar and a legend. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Alexander Cockburn
#43. Republicans know well that a change of rhetorical pace is necessary. But efforts by their leaders to damp down the bellicosity of newly elected Tea Party types is running into the fact that the Tea Partiers have only the high volume setting on their amplifiers, just like Palin. They're like a couple having a fight at a funeral; politely sotto voce, then suddenly bursting out fortissimo with their plaints and accusations. #Quote by Alexander Cockburn
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Shelley Ramsey
#44. I stood there, staring at my clothes. What does a mama wear to her son's funeral? I looked over my wardrobe.There were outfits purchased for work, church, and casual weekends but nothing to wear to the burial of my seventeen-year-old son. #Quote by Shelley Ramsey
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by George Ade
#45. In the city a funeral is just an interruption of traffic; in the country it is a form of entertainment. #Quote by George Ade
Combest Funeral Lubbock quotes by Thucydides
#46. For the whole earth is the tomb of famous men; not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions in their own country, but in foreign lands there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men. Make them your examples, and, esteeming courage to be freedom and freedom to be happiness, do not weigh too nicely the perils of war.
[Funeral Oration of Pericles] #Quote by Thucydides
