Drapos Obituary quotes by Jason Sudeikis
#1. Oh definitely. It'll be in a hot tub, with my entire head squeezed into a jet. The photos are going to be hilarious.

Drapos Obituary quotes by Alan A. Lew
#2. There is a story about Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite. One day his older brother died, and a newspaper got the story wrong and printed Alfred's obituary instead. Alfred opened the paper that morning and had the unusual experience of reading his obituary while he was still alive. "Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday," the obituary began. Alfred threw down the paper. That's not how I want to be remembered, he said. That's not what's important to me, he said, and right then and there he decided to throw his entire fortune into rewarding people for bettering this world and bringing it closer to peace. #Quote by Alan A. Lew

Drapos Obituary quotes by Abigail Roux
#4. We all die someday," Nick muttered as he moved off into the darkness.
"Yeah, but I'd rather my obituary didn't lead with 'He broke into a jail museum and then died,'" Digger grumbled as he trailed after.
"At least it would read 'with his friends,'" Doc added.
"If I wanted to die with you jokers, I would have done it in Afghanistan!"
Nick and Owen both stopped and wheeled on Doc and Digger. "Will you at least pretend that you care we're doing something illegal here?" Nick hissed.
Doc and Digger muttered apologies, and they carried on. #Quote by Abigail Roux
Drapos Obituary quotes by Laurie Nadel

Drapos Obituary quotes by Mark Skousen
#6. In my book, 'The Big Three in Economics,' I found that the press has frequently and prematurely written the obituary of Adam Smith and his free-market philosophy, only to see a new and more vibrant global marketplace reemerge after being savagely attacked by Keynesians, Marxists, and assorted socialists. #Quote by Mark Skousen
Drapos Obituary quotes by George Jackson
#7. The savage repression of blacks, which can be estimated by reading the obituary columns of the nation's dailies, Fred Hampton, etc., has not failed to register on the black inmates. #Quote by George Jackson
Drapos Obituary quotes by Oliver Bullough
#8. This may read like a mad journey through some of the most dangerous places on earth, but it is much more than that as well. Sheets witnessed most of the wars, disasters, and revolutions that followed the end of communism, and his accounts of them
from Chechnya to Chernobyl, and from Abkhazia to Afghanistan
serve as a passionate but considered obituary for the vanished Soviet empire. #Quote by Oliver Bullough
Drapos Obituary quotes by Tessy Rawlins
#9. He recalls that the room went 'icy cold' as his patient Catherine strangely began to channel messages from Dr Weiss's own deceased family members; things she could not have possibly known. "She didn't know anything about me," Dr Weiss says. "I didn't even have diplomas in my office. This was before the internet, and she's telling me "You're Father's here and your son." Dr Weiss remembers his shock that a stranger shared so many facts about his life, including that his Father had tragically died from a heart condition. "She tells me my daughter is named after my Father..which she is, and it is an unusual name. She said, "Your Father is here; he died from his heart." And she went into other medical details. "I'm thinking, "What is this? How does she know this?" My Father never had an obituary. #Quote by Tessy Rawlins
Drapos Obituary quotes by Kim Cormack
#10. Kayn began to speak as if she were reading his obituary. "I can see the paper now; it would read something like this; Kevin Smith was a wonderful boy so smart and good looking but a little clumsy. Had he simply tied up his shoes he would have never tripped down the stairs and found himself impaled on a janitor's broom. Remember kids; tie your shoes; safety first." (The Children of Ankh series) #Quote by Kim Cormack
Drapos Obituary quotes by Laura Trentham
#11. The dreams fresh on her mind, she wrote about the Ada she remembered. The obituary wasn't the sad, plodding list of mother and father, dead children, and surviving family. It honored a strong, funny woman. She proofed it a second time with a smile on her face. Ada would have slapped her knee and crowed along with her. #Quote by Laura Trentham
Drapos Obituary quotes by Brigid Kemmerer
#12. Zoe is survived by her husband, Charles, and her daughter, Juliet.

Survived. This guy is right. The words we use to surround death are bizarre. Like we're hiding something.

I guess the obituary wouldn't read right if it said something like, Zoe died on the way home from the airport, after nine months on assignment in a war zone, leaving her husband, Charles, and her daughter, Juliet, with a Welcome Home cake that would sit in the refrigerator for a month before either of them could bear to throw it away.

So maybe we are hiding something. #Quote by Brigid Kemmerer
Drapos Obituary quotes by Spencer Abraham
#13. I always wondered what hearing one's own obituary might sound like, and I sort of feel like I may have just heard part of it at least. #Quote by Spencer Abraham
Drapos Obituary quotes by Robert Kennedy
#14. About one month before he was killed, when asked by David Frost how his obituary should read: Something about the fact that I made some contribution to either my country, or those who were less well off. I think back to what Camus wrote about the fact that perhaps this world is a world in which children suffer, but we can lessen the number of suffering children, and if you do not do this, then who will do this? I'd like to feel that I'd done something to lessen that suffering. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Drapos Obituary quotes by Josiah Willard Gibbs
#15. His true monument lies not on the shelves of libraries, but in the thoughts of men, and in the history of more than one science.

{Gibbs's obituary for scientist Rudolf Clausius} #Quote by Josiah Willard Gibbs
Drapos Obituary quotes by Dana Gould
#16. One phrase you don't want kicking off your obituary is, Never, in the long history of bungee jumping ... #Quote by Dana Gould
Drapos Obituary quotes by Arthur Smith
#17. When a writer dies you get a higher standard of obituary. #Quote by Arthur Smith
Drapos Obituary quotes by Roger Maris
#18. It's like obituaries, when you die they finally give you good reviews. #Quote by Roger Maris
Drapos Obituary quotes by Jandy Nelson
#19. I'd been making desicions for days.
I picked out the dress Bailey would wear forever-
a black slinky one- innapropriate- that she loved.
I chose a sweater to go over it, earrings, bracelet, necklace,
her most beloved strappy sandals.
I collected her makeup to give to the funeral director with a recent photo-
I thought it would be me that would dress her;
I didn't think a strange man should see her naked
touch her body
shave her legs
apply her lipstick
but that's what happened all the same.
I helped Gram pick out the casket,
the plot at the cemetery.
I changed a few lines
in the obituary that Big composed.
I wrote on a piece of paper what I thought
should go on the headstone.
I did all this without uttering a word.
Not one word, for days,
until I saw Bailey before the funeral
and lost my mind.
I hadn't realized that when people say so-and-so
snapped
that's what actually happens-
I started shaking her-
I thought I could wake her up
and get her the hell out of that box.
When she didn't wake,
I screamed: Talk to me.
Big swooped me up in his arms,
carried me out of the room, the church,
into the slamming rain,
and down to the creek
where we sobbed together
under the black coat he held over our heads
to protect us from the weather. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Drapos Obituary quotes by Alistair MacLean
#20. This won't look so good in my obituary," Schaffer said dolefully. There was a perceptible edge of strain under the lightly-spoken words."Gave his life for his country in a ladies' lavatory in Upper Bavaria. #Quote by Alistair MacLean
Drapos Obituary quotes by Charles Wheelan
#21. Maybe it's a stretch to blame a broader social pathology on hyper-competitive soccer parents. Still, there is not a huge downside to asking every once in a while, Why am I doing this? We will know for certain that my analysis is wrong when we see the following obituary: Bob Smith died yesterday at the age of 74. He finished life in 186th place. #Quote by Charles Wheelan
Drapos Obituary quotes by Roz Savage
#22. A few years ago I wrote two versions of my obituary, the one I wanted and the one I was heading for. They were very different. I realized I needed to make some big changes if I was going to look back and be proud of my life. I am making those changes, and now I have a life worth living. #Quote by Roz Savage
Drapos Obituary quotes by Robert Mankoff
#23. I don't think most people know what's going to be in their obituary, but I do. #Quote by Robert Mankoff
Drapos Obituary quotes by Tom Rachman
#24. A common defense among obituary-fanciers such as myself is that the obit is not about death at all. It is about life. This is true since an article about the condition of deadness would make for turgid reading at best. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Drapos Obituary quotes by Stephen King
#25. It's always the end for now, and in real life, the only full stop is on the obituary page. #Quote by Stephen King
Drapos Obituary quotes by Brian Alan Ellis

Drapos Obituary quotes by Edith Hahn Beer
#28. Obituary for Edith Hahn Beer from the Times (UK) This obituary was published in the March 26, 2009, edition of the London Times. Reprinted with permission of the Times, London. EDITH HAHN-BEER escaped probable extermination as a Jew in wartime Germany by assuming a #Quote by Edith Hahn Beer
Drapos Obituary quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#29. I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Drapos Obituary quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#30. The clear awareness of having been born into a losing struggle need not lead one into despair. I do not especially like the idea that one day I shall be tapped on the shoulder and informed, not that the party is over but that it is most assuredly going on - only henceforth in my absence. (It's the second of those thoughts: the edition of the newspaper that will come out on the day after I have gone, that is the more distressing.) Much more horrible, though, would be the announcement that the party was continuing forever, and that I was forbidden to leave. Whether it was a hellishly bad party or a party that was perfectly heavenly in every respect, the moment that it became eternal and compulsory would be the precise moment that it began to pall. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Drapos Obituary quotes by Josephine Tey
#31. And Hopkins, seeing that Tisdall was unaware of Grant's identity, rushed in with glad maliciousness. "That is Scotland Yard," he said. "Inspector Grant. Never had an unsolved crime to his name." "I hope you write my obituary," Grant said. "I hope I do!" the journalist said, with fervor. #Quote by Josephine Tey
Drapos Obituary quotes by Audrey Regan
#32. Do something you would be proud to have in your obituary, but not something that will haunt you until that day.
Live for now, hope for later, and remember then.
As you grow older always remember to never fully grow up.
This is real.
Stand up and look at the skin you're in.
Don't let the others turn you green, think about it, and make it how you want.
Now you're done reading this, do something that make to make who you are make you happy. #Quote by Audrey Regan
Drapos Obituary quotes by Kenneth Oppel
#33. The seed for my novel 'Half Brother' was planted in my mind over twenty years ago, but didn't germinate until late 2007 when I came across the obituary for Washoe, an extraordinary chimpanzee who had learned over 250 words of American Sign Language. #Quote by Kenneth Oppel
Drapos Obituary quotes by Rick Riordan
#34. Bast crouched down and began making weird chittering noises. Uh-oh. She was imitating birds. I'd seen enough cats do this when they were stalking. Suddenly my own obituary flashed in my head: Carter Kane, 14, tragically died in Paris wen he was eaten by his sister's cat, Muffin. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Drapos Obituary quotes by John Zakour
#35. HARV, can you help at all here?" I asked, spinning downward.
"I am writing your obituary. Well, not so much writing it as updating it," HARV told me.
If I lived, I was going to kill HARV. #Quote by John Zakour
Drapos Obituary quotes by Tony Kushner
#36. I'm fairly certain when I die that the obituary will say, 'Author of 'Angels in America' dies.' Unless I'm completely forgotten, and then it won't say anything at all. #Quote by Tony Kushner
Drapos Obituary quotes by Darrell Case
#37. Live in such a way no one who reads your obituary will be surprised you're a Christian. #Quote by Darrell Case
Drapos Obituary quotes by Lesley Manville
#38. Anyone who has to write an obituary for me one day will probably say, 'She did absolute depths of agony really well.' I'm not, however, an unhappy person. #Quote by Lesley Manville
Drapos Obituary quotes by David Lat
#39. Have you ever had an experience where, had things turned out just a little bit differently, your entire life would have been transformed?

Like a Supreme Court clerkship, a Rhodes Scholarship gets mentioned in your obituary.

The door was open just a crack, in a way that seemed to say "I have an 'open door' policy, but I really don't want to be bothered."

Success didn't take you off the treadmill, but simply put you on a different treadmill, at a higher speed and with a steeper incline.

When we're young, overachieving, and unstoppable, we all think we're special. But as we grow older, we reach a more realistic understanding of our place in the world. It happens at different times for different people, but eventually we all come to terms with our own ordinariness. #Quote by David Lat
