Eulogy quotes by Clarence Darrow
#1. 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
Eulogy quotes by Oscar Wilde
#2. Find expression for a sorrow, and it will become dear to you. Find expression for a joy, and you will intensify its ecstasy. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Eulogy quotes by Mitch Albom
#3. A eulogy is no more than a summation of memories, and we will never forget you, because we cannot forget you, because we will miss you every day. To imagine a world without you in it is to imagine a world with a little less God in it, and yet, because God is not a diminishing resource, I cannot believe that. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Eulogy quotes by Dan Aykroyd
#4. I wrote many things for and with John. I know this is one assignment he'd rather I didn't have to take on. Although I had a close – head to head, arm to arm working relationship with John, that proximity never affected the fact that from the moment I met him, through all work, I remain his number one fan. He was a brilliant performer, writer, tactician, business strategist and most importantly, he was the only man that I could dance with. He was a great – a world class – emissary of American humor. John was a patriot, a resident of the most wide open, liberal society on earth, and he took full advantage of it. In come cases, real greatness gives license for real indulgence; whether it's as a reward, as therapy or as sanctuary. For as hard as John worked, there had to be an additional illicit thrill to make the effort all worthwhile. John was a nighthawk, true. But he was not an immoral individual. He was a good man, a kind man, a warm man, a hot man. What we are talking about here is a good man – and a bad boy. Johnny – you can be sure that I'll have my antennae out for the paranatural and the spiritual, and believe me, if there's any contact with him, I'll let you know. #Quote by Dan Aykroyd
Eulogy quotes by A&E Kirk
#5. Ironic, is it not, that the great Divinicus Nex cowers in fear from that which should be her fated prey? A decidedly diametric circumstance.
What? It's irritating when the monster hunting you has a better vocabulary than your own. Maybe it could do my eulogy? #Quote by A&E Kirk
Eulogy quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#6. According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy. #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Eulogy quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#7. All death reminds us that nothing is promised, only that life was worth it. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Eulogy quotes by Guru Nanak
#8. Me, the bard out of work, the Lord has applied to His service. In the very beginning, He gave me the order to sing His praises night and day. The Master summoned the minstrel to His True Court. He clothed me with the robe of His true honour and eulogy. Since then, the True Name had become my ambrosial food. #Quote by Guru Nanak
Eulogy quotes by Charles H. Bennett
#9. I am so sorry to hear of Asher's passing. I will miss his scientific insight and advice, but even more his humor and stubborn integrity. I remember when one of his colleagues complained about Asher's always rejecting his manuscript when they were sent to him to referee. Asher said in effect, 'You should thank me. I am only trying to protect your reputation.' He often pretended to consult me, a fellow atheist, on matters of religious protocol.

{Charles H. Bennett's letter written to the family of Israeli physicist, Asher Peres} #Quote by Charles H. Bennett
Eulogy quotes by Plato
#10. And I understood then that I was a fool when I told you I would take my turn in singing the honours of Love, and admitted I was terribly clever in love affairs, whereas it seems I really had no idea how a eulogy ought to be made. For I was stupid enough to think that we ought to speak the truth about each person eulogised, and to make this the foundation, and from these truths to choose the most beautiful things and arrange them in the most elegant way; and I was quite proud to think how well I should speak, because I believed that I knew the truth. #Quote by Plato
Eulogy quotes by George Carlin
#11. I'm always relieved when someone is delivering a eulogy and I realize I'm listening to it. #Quote by George Carlin
Eulogy quotes by William Shakespeare
#12. His life was gentle; and the elements
So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, THIS WAS A MAN! #Quote by William Shakespeare
Eulogy quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#13. To hear how much of a great human being you were - even if you really weren't - open your ears at your funeral. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Eulogy quotes by John Grisham
#14. The sixth and last eulogy was from Roderick, Hugo and Verna's oldest child. He wrote a three-page tribute to his father, and it was read by the reverend. Even Michael Geismar, a cold-blooded Presbyterian, finally succumbed to his emotions. The #Quote by John Grisham
Eulogy quotes by Samuel Butler
#15. I fall asleep in the full and certain hope That my slumber shall not be broken; And that, though I be all-forgetting, Yet shall I not be all-forgotten, But continue that life in the thoughts and deeds of those I have loved. #Quote by Samuel Butler
Eulogy quotes by Jim Rohn
#16. The good life is not an amount; it's an attitude, an act, an idea, a discovery, a search. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Eulogy quotes by Jim Rohn
#17. If we are fortunate, we one day find that person who impacts our world in such a way that our life is never the same again. By chance, or by design, we met that someone who offers the support, encouragement, and inspiration to become more than we ever thought possible. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Eulogy quotes by Krista Ritchie
#18. New eulogy: Here lies Willow Hale, the girl who fucked for the first time and then left. #Quote by Krista Ritchie
Eulogy quotes by Arianna Huffington
#19. Have you notices that when we die, our eulogies celebrate our lives very differently from the way society defines success? #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Eulogy quotes by E.W. Storch
#20. If I close my eyes, I can feel his body, in that way that you do when someone is near, a faint yet intent electric pulsing. #Quote by E.W. Storch
Eulogy quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#21. Do not try to live forever. You will not succeed. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Eulogy quotes by Robert Kennedy
#22. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Eulogy quotes by Regina Brett
#23. Some people hate funerals. I find them comforting. They hit the pause button on life and remind us that it has an end. Every eulogy reminds me to deepen my dash, that place on the tombstone between our birth and our death. #Quote by Regina Brett
Eulogy quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#24. Joy increases as you give it, and diminishes as you try to keep it for yourself. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Eulogy quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#25. Our lives are songs; God write the words And we set them to music at pleasure; And the song grows glad, or sweet or sad, As we choose to fashion the measure. #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Eulogy quotes by Marcel Proust
#26. This new concept of the "finest, highest achievement of art" had no sooner entered my mind than it located the imperfect enjoyment I had had at the theater, and added to it a little of what it lacked; this made such a heady mixture that I exclaimed, "What a great artiste she is!" It may be thought I was not altogether sincere. Think, however, of so many writers who, in a moment of dissatisfaction with a piece they have just written, may read a eulogy of the genius of Chateaubriand, or who may think of some other great artist whom they have dreamed of equaling, who hum to themselves a phrase of Beethoven for instance, comparing the sadness of it to the mood they have tried to capture in their prose, and are then so carried away by the perception of genius that they let it affect the way they read their own piece, no longer seeing it as they first saw it, but going so far as to hazard an act of faith in the value of it, by telling themselves "It's not bad you know!" without realizing that the sum total which determines their ultimate satisfaction includes the memory of Chateaubriand's brilliant pages, which they have assimilated to their own, but which, of course, they did not write. Think of all the men who go on believing in the love of a mistress in whom nothing is more flagrant than her infidelities; of all those torn between the hope of something beyond this life (such as the bereft widower who remembers a beloved wife, or the artist who indulges in dreams of posthumous fa #Quote by Marcel Proust
Eulogy quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#27. In the eulogy by the graveside, I told everyone how my sister and I used to sing to each other on our birthday. I told them that, when I thought of my sister, I could still hear her laughter, sense her optimism, and feel her faith. I told them that my sister was the kindest person I;ve ever known, and that the world was a sadder place without her in it. And finally, I told them to remember my sister with a smile, like I did, for even though she was being buried near my parents, the best parts of her would always stay alive, deep within our hearts. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Eulogy quotes by Jalina Mhyana
#28. I can't pray or weigh my words right; doomsday
is here my friend, but you're immune. We suffer
for you. I'm weaving crowns of sonnets, dreads;
a souvenir so you'll never forget your friends. #Quote by Jalina Mhyana
Eulogy quotes by Eddie Marsan
#29. I'm used to being in front of camera and knowing what to think. But if you're asking me to be me, I get very self-conscious. My job isn't to be me. Being an actor, people think you can do a eulogy at a funeral, a speech at a wedding. I find all that very nerve-racking. #Quote by Eddie Marsan
Eulogy quotes by Arianna Huffington
#30. Our eulogies are always about the other stuff: what we gave, how we connected, how much we meant to our family and friends, small kindnesses, lifelong passions, and the things that made us laugh. So why do we spend so much of our limited time on this earth focusing on all the things our eulogy will never cover? #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Eulogy quotes by Spike Lee
#31. This film [Chi-Raq]is a declaration. It's a scream. It's a warning. And I can really break it down to one scene. That's the scene where we have the eulogy and sermon that is given by the great John Cusack. #Quote by Spike Lee
Eulogy quotes by Mark Twain
#32. Warm summer sun,
shine brightly here,
Warm Southern wind,
blow softly here,
Green sod above,
lie light, lie light,
Good night, dear heart;
good night, good night. #Quote by Mark Twain
Eulogy quotes by Graham Moore
#33. 'The Imitation Game' is a celebration of Alan Turing's life and legacy, and Joan's final monologue is our eulogy. It's the thing we all wished we could have said to him. #Quote by Graham Moore
Eulogy quotes by John Green
#34. Isaac was still clinging to the lectern. He started to cry. He pressed his forehead down to the podium and I watched his shoulders shake, and then finally, he said, 'Goddamn it, Augustus, editing your own eulogy.'
'Don't swear in the Literal Heart of Jesus,' Gus said.
'Goddamn it, Isaac said again. #Quote by John Green
Eulogy quotes by Pat Conroy
#35. And I have begun thinking of that life as miraculous and lucky. How could a man I had dreaded as my commandant and who tried twice to get me kicked out of college become the subject of the first book I would write? [ ... ] Who could have foreseen the day I would deliver his eulogy at the Summerall Chapel, or that I would give a speech on the night they named the dining room in the new Alumni Hall after him? Not me. Not once. Not ever. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Eulogy quotes by Beeban Kidron
#36. I had a sort of classic moment when a friend of mine rang up and said she'd just been to a funeral, and in the middle of the eulogy, this kid had taken out the phone and had a whole proper text conversation - while everyone was weeping! #Quote by Beeban Kidron
Eulogy quotes by Arianna Huffington
#37. Eulogies never talk about what was on your resume. Be remembered for how you made people feel and your passions #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Eulogy quotes by Brian Koslow
#38. One way to evaluate your own reputation is to think about what would be said of you at your eulogy. #Quote by Brian Koslow
Eulogy quotes by Christian Dior
#39. Women are most fascinating between the ages of 35 and 40 after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass 40, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely. #Quote by Christian Dior
Eulogy quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#40. Women speak at an earlier age, more easily, and more agreeably than men; they are accused also of speaking more; this is as it should be, and I willingly change the reproach into a eulogy. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Eulogy quotes by Andrei Codrescu
#41. eulogy for men

for ruxandra

men have doubles.
women don't.
men invent doubles for women so that they can both have a woman.
women pretend that they too have a double to please their double-man.
women may have many double-men who believe that they have a double-woman.
one woman can be the author of dozens of imaginary women for their many double-men.
one woman can make many women from stories.
eve had to make up lillith, sheherezade had to make up 1001 women
but there was only one eve and one sheherezade, the rest were men's dreams.
women invented speech to multiply themselves while also multiplying men.
women are the mothers of stories and the mothers of men.
poor men whose only gift is to listen and whose only strength is being two. #Quote by Andrei Codrescu
Eulogy quotes by Barack Obama
#42. My liberty depends on you being free, too. #Quote by Barack Obama
Eulogy quotes by Lord Byron
#43. You are 'the best of cut-throats:'--do not start;
The phrase is Shakespeare's, and not misapplied:--
War's a brain-spattering, windpipe-slitting art,
Unless her cause by Right be sanctified.
If you have acted once a generous part,
The World, not the World's masters, will decide,
And I shall be delighted to learn who,
Save you and yours, have gained by Waterloo?

I am no flatterer--you've supped full of flattery:
They say you like it too--'tis no great wonder:
He whose whole life has been assault and battery,
At last may get a little tired of thunder;
And swallowing eulogy much more than satire, he
May like being praised for every lucky blunder;
Called 'Saviour of the Nations'--not yet saved,
And Europe's Liberator--still enslaved.

I've done. Now go and dine from off the plate
Presented by the Prince of the Brazils,
And send the sentinel before your gate
A slice or two from your luxurious meals:
He fought, but has not fed so well of late... #Quote by Lord Byron
Eulogy quotes by John  Williams
#44. William Stoner entered the University of Missouri as a freshman in the year 1910, at the age of nineteen. Eight years later, during the height of World War I, he received his Doctor of Philosophy degree and accepted an instructorship at the same University, where he taught until his death in 1956. He did not rise above the rank of assistant professor, and few students remembered him with any sharpness after they had taken his courses. When he died his colleagues made a memorial contribution of a medieval manuscript to the University library. This manuscript may still be found in the Rare Books Collection, bearing the inscription: 'Presented to the Library of the University of Missouri, in memory of William Stoner, Department of English. By his colleagues.'

An occasional student who comes upon the name may wonder idly who William Stoner was, but he seldom pursues his curiosity beyond a casual questions. Stoner's colleagues, who held him in no particular esteem when he was alive, speak of him rarely now; to the older ones, his name is a reminder of the end that awaits them all, and to the younger ones it is merely a sound which evokes no sense of the past and no identity with which they can associate themselves or their careers. #Quote by John Williams
Eulogy quotes by Michelle Franklin
#45. Such pedantic apotheosis is reached by so few, and when parishioners are left without their guiding star, we can only desperately cling to the last intimations of a passing titan. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
Eulogy quotes by Henry Van Dyke
#46. Some people are so afraid do die that they never begin to live. #Quote by Henry Van Dyke
Eulogy quotes by David Levithan
#47. From behind the wheel, I learn the difference between a eulogy and an elegy, and discover which is more vital, in life and in death. #Quote by David Levithan
Eulogy quotes by Jay Leno
#48. Services were held today for Ken Lay - convicted thief and crook Ken Lay.They folded his arms across his chest and sowed his sleeves together so he couldn't put his hands in anyone's pockets when they walked by. You know when they say in a eulogy, "You're all richer for having known him." I don't think they're going to hear that. #Quote by Jay Leno
Eulogy quotes by Alphonse De Lamartine
#49. Friendship, sweet-resting place of the soul, the gloaming wherein our hearts find peace ... #Quote by Alphonse De Lamartine
Eulogy quotes by Louise Gluck
#50. Suddenly, after you die, those friends
who never agreed about anything
agree about your character. #Quote by Louise Gluck
Eulogy quotes by Greg Seeley
#51. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him - but he was a good and faithful horse.

From "Eulogy for a Percheron" in "The Horse Lawyer and Other Poems #Quote by Greg Seeley
Eulogy quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#52. The marriage is over; counseling is the eulogy. The relationship autopsy is the wake. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Eulogy quotes by Rod Serling
#53. In his grave, we praise him for his decency - but when he walked amongst us, we responded with no decency of our own.
When he suggested that all men should have a place in the sun - we put a special sanctity on the right of ownership and the privilege of prejudice by maintaining that to deny homes to Negroes was a democratic right.
Now we acknowledge his compassion - but we exercised no compassion of our own. When he asked us to understand that men take to the streets out of anguish and hopelessness and a vision of that dream dying, we bought guns and speculated about roving agitators and subversive conspiracies and demanded law and order.
We felt anger at the effects, but did little to acknowledge the causes. We extol all the virtues of the man - but we chose not to call them virtues before his death.
And now, belatedly, we talk of this man's worth - but the judgement comes late in the day as part of a eulogy when it should have been made a matter of record while he existed as a living force. If we are to lend credence to our mourning, there are acknowledgements that must be made now, albeit belatedly. We must act on the altogether proper assumption that Martin Luther King asked for nothing but that which was his due... He asked only for equality, and it is that which we denied him.
[excerpt from a letter to The Los Angeles Times in response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.; April 8, 1968 #Quote by Rod Serling
Eulogy quotes by Jung Chang
#54. I was extremely curious about the alternatives to the kind of life I had been leading, and my friends and I exchanged rumors and scraps of information we dug from official publications. I was struck less by the West's technological developments and high living standards than by the absence of political witch-hunts, the lack of consuming suspicion, the dignity of the individual, and the incredible amount of liberty. To me, the ultimate proof of freedom in the West was that there seemed to be so many people there attacking the West and praising China. Almost every other day the front page of Reference, the newspaper which carded foreign press items, would feature some eulogy of Mao and the Cultural Revolution. At first I was angered by these, but they soon made me see how tolerant another society could be. I realized that this was the kind of society I wanted to live in: where people were allowed to hold different, even outrageous views. I began to see that it was the very tolerance of oppositions, of protesters, that kept the West progressing.

Still, I could not help being irritated by some observations. Once I read an article by a Westerner who came to China to see some old friends, university professors, who told him cheerfully how they had enjoyed being denounced and sent to the back end of beyond, and how much they had relished being reformed. The author concluded that Mao had indeed made the Chinese into 'new people' who would regard what was misery to a Weste #Quote by Jung Chang
Eulogy quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#55. No ordinary work done by a man is either as hard or as responsible as the work of a woman who is bringing up a family of small children; for upon her time and strength demands are made not only every hour of the day but often every hour of the night. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Eulogy quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#56. Very few people in the world would care to listen to the real defense of their own characters. The real defense, the defense which belongs to the Day of Judgment, would make such damaging admissions, would clear away so many artificial virtues, would tell such tragedies of weakness and failure, that a man would sooner be misunderstood and censured by the world than exposed to that awful and merciless eulogy. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Eulogy quotes by Charles R. Cross
#57. He had the desperation, not the courage, to be himself. Once you do that, you can't go wrong, because you can't make any mistakes when people love you for being yourself. But for Kurt, it didn't matter that other people loved him; he simply didn't love himself enough. #Quote by Charles R. Cross
Eulogy quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#58. One can endure sorrow alone, but it takes two to be glad. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Eulogy quotes by Homer
#59. And they die an equal death - the idler and the man of mighty deeds. #Quote by Homer
Eulogy quotes by Garrison Keillor
#60. I'm of an age when if I started to do eulogies, I'd be doing nothing else. You don't want to be remembered? I don't want them to be told to remember me. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Eulogy quotes by Arianna Huffington
#61. We may not be able to witness our own eulogy, but we're actually writing it all the time, every day. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Eulogy quotes by Barack Obama
#62. We cannot know for certain how long we have here. We cannot foresee the trials or misfortunes that will test us along the way. We cannot know God's plan for us.
What we can do is to live out our lives as best we can with purpose, and love, and joy. We can use each day to show those who are closest to us how much we care about them, and treat others with the kindness and respect that we wish for ourselves. We can learn from our mistakes and grow from our failures. And we can strive at all costs to make a better world, so that someday, if we are blessed with the chance to look back on our time here, we can know that we spent it well; that we made a difference; that our fleeting presence had a lasting impact on the lives of other human beings. #Quote by Barack Obama
Eulogy quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#63. Washington's is the mightiest name of earth - long since mightiest in the cause of civil liberty; still mightiest in moral reformation. On that name no eulogy is expected. It cannot be. To add brightness to the sun, or glory to the name of Washington, is alike impossible. Let none attempt it. In solemn awe pronounce the name, and in its naked deathless splendor leave it shining on. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Eulogy quotes by Margaret Moore
#64. Cherish all your happy moments. #Quote by Margaret Moore
Eulogy quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#65. If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Eulogy quotes by Christopher Buckley
#66. A twenty-minute eulogy, unless composed by a) William Shakespeare, b) Winston Churchill, or c) Mark Twain, is sixteen minutes too long. Technical note: It is better to tell a eulogist to speak for four minutes not five minutes. "Five minutes" to the modern ear sounds like "around five minutes," whereas "four minutes" means "four minutes. #Quote by Christopher Buckley
Eulogy quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#67. The man who said, "Blessed is he that expecteth nothing, for he shall not be disappointed," put the eulogy quite inadequately and even falsely. The truth "Blessed is he that expecteth nothing, for he shall be gloriously surprised." The man who expects nothing sees redder roses than common men can see, and greener grass, and a more startling sun. Blessed is he that expecteth nothing, for he shall possess the cities and the mountains; blessed is the meek, for he shall inhereit the earth. Until we realize that things might not be we cannot realize that things are. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eulogy quotes by Kiersten White
#68. I like him," Nazira said, and it sounded like a eulogy.
"Me too," Radu echoed. #Quote by Kiersten White
Eulogy quotes by Brandon R. Chinn
#69. Last words? I'm sure it has been an eventful journey. Someone will want to make your eulogy creative, I have no doubt. I can only wonder what will happen to the mind of the person that is forcefully debugged with their consciousness this deep into the WoAnLiNe. It's going to make an interesting case study for some boring old zero that has that kind of time. I should erase your Animus while I'm at it. It would keep these sorts of problems from happening in the future, troublemaker. #Quote by Brandon R. Chinn
Eulogy quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#70. The chief obstacle is that we are quick to be satisfied with ourselves. If we find someone to call us good men, cautious and principled, we acknowledge him. We are not content with a moderate eulogy, but accept as our due whatever flattery has shamelessly heaped upon us. We agree with those who call us best and wisest, although we know they often utter many falsehoods: we indulge ourselves so greatly that we want to be praised for a virtue which is the opposite of our behavior. A man hears himself called 'most merciful' while he is inflicting torture.. So it follows that we don't want to change because we believe we are already excellent. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Eulogy quotes by Brandon Mull
#71. She pictured herself running from a hoard of ravenous zombies on a hot day eventually collapsing from heatstroke and getting devoured. Then she imagined Hal giving a rousing eulogy at her funeral explaining how Kendra's death was a beautiful sacrifice allowing the noble zombies to live on delighting future generations by mindlessly trying to eat them. With her luck it could totally happen. #Quote by Brandon Mull
Eulogy quotes by Al Sharpton
#72. As I stood and gave the eulogy for young Michael Brown last week, I kept thinking about the fact that this child should have been in college instead of laying in a coffin. #Quote by Al Sharpton
Eulogy quotes by Louise Penny
#73. Clara tried to give the eulogy, but couldn't speak. Her words stuck at the lump in her throat. And so Myrna took over, holding her hand while Clara stood beside her. #Quote by Louise Penny
Eulogy quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#74. The sculptor, the painter the musician the dancer, or any artist, if he can first obtain celebrate in Paris, acquires very easily the esteem and eulogy of other countries. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Eulogy quotes by Mary Anne Radmacher
#75. Living eulogy.
she danced.
she sang. she took.
she gave.
she loved.
she created.
she dissented. she enlivened.
she saw. she grew. she sweated.
she changed.
she learned. she laughed.
she shed her skin.
she bled on the pages of her days,
she walked through walls,
she lived with intention. #Quote by Mary Anne Radmacher
Eulogy quotes by Ted Turner
#76. Man should be judged by the deeds done to help his fellow man. #Quote by Ted Turner
Eulogy quotes by Tanya Masse
#77. Really think about what you want your eulogy to say about you, then live THAT. #Quote by Tanya Masse
Eulogy quotes by Philip Schaff
#78. Henceforth we find woman no longer a slave of man and tool of lust, but the pride and joy of her husband, the fond mother training her children to virtue and godliness, the ornament and treasure of the family, the faithful sister, the zealous servant of the congregation in every work of Christian charity, the sister of mercy, the martyr with superhuman courage, the guardian angel of peace, the example of purity, humility, gentleness, patience, love, and fidelity unto death. Such women were unknown before. The heathen Libanius, the enthusiastic eulogist of old Grecian culture, pronounced an involuntary eulogy on Christianity when he exclaimed, as he looked at the mother of Chrysostom: "What women the Christians have! #Quote by Philip Schaff
Eulogy quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#79. Now, I assume you don't want me to cart you back to Fjerda or the Shu Han?"

It was clear Nina had finished the translation when Kuwei yelped, "No!"

"Then your choices are Novyi Zem and the Southern Colonies, but the Kerch presence in the colonies is far lower. Also, the weather is better, if you're partial to that kind of thing. You are a stolen painting, Kuwei. Too recognizable to sell on the open market, too valuable to leave lying around. You are worthless to me."

"I'm not translating that," Nina snapped.

"Then translate this: My sole concern is keeping you away from Jan Van Eck, and if you want me to start exploring more definite options, a bullet is a lot cheaper than putting you on a ship to the Southern Colonies."

Nina did translate, though haltingly.

Kuwei responded in Shu. She hesitated. "He says you're cruel."

"I'm pragmatic. If I were cruel, I'd give him a eulogy instead of a conversation. So, Kuwei, you'll go to the Southern Colonies, and when the heat has died down, you can find your way to Ravka or Matthias' grandmother's house for all I care."

"Leave my grandmother out of this," Matthias said. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Eulogy quotes by John Green
#80. He presses his forehead down on the podium and I watched his shoulders shake, and then finally, he said, "Goddamn it, Augustus, editing your own eulogy."
"Don't swear in the Literal Heart of Jesus," Gus said. #Quote by John Green
Eulogy quotes by Jarod Kintz
#81. Did I hear that right? Did someone say ice cream? It's an odd thing to say in the middle of a eulogy, but hell yes, I could go for some ice cream. We could take a break, because it's not like this guy won't still be dead in a half an hour. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Eulogy quotes by Duke Ellington
#82. His greatest virtue, I think, was his honesty--not only to others but to himself...He demanded freedom of expression and lived in what we consider the most important of moral freedoms; freedom from hate, unconditionally; freedom from all self-pity (even throughout all the pain and bad news); freedom from fear of possibly doing something that might help another more than it might help himself; and freedom from that kind of pride that could make a man feel he was better than his brother or neighbor #Quote by Duke Ellington
Eulogy quotes by Max Brooks
#83. So I put it out of its misery, if it really was miserable, and tried not to think about it. That was another thing they taught us at Willow Creek: don't write their eulogy, don't try to imagine who they used to be, how they came to be here, how they came to be this. I know, who doesn't do that, right? Who doesn't look at one of those things and just naturally start to wonder? It's like reading the last page of a book ... your imagination just naturally spinning. And that's when you get distracted, get sloppy, let your guard down and end up leaving someone else to wonder what happened to you. #Quote by Max Brooks
Eulogy quotes by Jim Rohn
#84. A well-fashioned day - with a beginning and an end, a purpose and a content, a color and a character, a feel and a texture - takes it place among the many and becomes a valuable memory and treasure. At midnight the winged messengers come and gather up all these pieces and take them off to wherever the mosaic is kept. And surely, on occasion, one messenger says to another, 'Wait 'til you see this one.' #Quote by Jim Rohn
Eulogy quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#85. He who enjoys doing and enjoys what he has done is happy. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Eulogy quotes by Luther Burbank
#86. I do not think there is a person in this world who has been a more ardent admirer of him than I have been. His life and work have been an inspiration to the whole earth, shedding light in the dark places which so sadly needed light. His memory calls forth my most sincere homage, love, and esteem.

{Burbank on the great Robert Ingersoll, whom he admired so much that he requested Ingersoll's eulogy for his brother, Ebon Ingersoll, to be read at his own funeral} #Quote by Luther Burbank

Eulogy quotes by Abraham   Verghese
#88. We stopped you from going, didn't we? Me and Shiva. Our birth?"
Don't be silly. Can you imagine me giving up this?" he said sweeping his hand to indicate family, Missing, the home he'd made out of a bungalow. "I've been blessed. My genius was to know long ago that money alone wouldn't make me happy. Or maybe that's my excuse for not leaving you a huge fortune! I certainly could have made more money if that had been my goal. But one thing I won't have is regrets. My VIP patients often regret so many things on their deathbeds. They regret the bitterness they'll leave in people's hearts. They realize the no money, no church service, no eulogy, no funeral procession no matter how elaborate, can remove the legacy of a mean spirit.

Of course, you and I have seen countless deaths among the poor. Their only regret surely is being born poor, suffering from birth to death. You know, in the book of Job, Job says to God, 'You should've taken me straight from the womb to the tomb! Why the in-between part, why life, if it was just to suffer?' Something like that. For the poor, death is at least the end of suffering. #Quote by Abraham Verghese

Eulogy quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#90. A recent survey stated that the average person's greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list. So, you're telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy. #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Eulogy quotes by Emma Berquist
#91. I turn on my side and study the beam close to my head, next to the entrance. There are names scratched in the wood, some deep and some barely visible. Davis, I read. Rodríguez. Eames. One that could be Hicks, or maybe Ricks. Why do they carve their names, when only strangers will read them? A name is only a meaningless word with nothing to attach it to. Maybe it is enough just to be remembered, if only for your name; here is proof of life, faceless and voiceless but unmistakable. Immortality of a strange sort: a eulogy in wood. #Quote by Emma Berquist
Eulogy quotes by William Wordsworth
#92. But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Eulogy quotes by Nanette L. Avery
#93. From out of the ground a eulogy grows and becomes a poppy. #Quote by Nanette L. Avery
Eulogy quotes by Geoffrey Rush
#94. More people have a fear of speaking than a fear of death. So at a funeral, most people would want to be the person in the coffin rather than the person delivering the eulogy! #Quote by Geoffrey Rush
Eulogy quotes by Irvin S. Cobb
#95. A funeral eulogy is a belated plea for the defense delivered after the evidence is all in. #Quote by Irvin S. Cobb
Eulogy quotes by Lin Yutang
#96. There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it, and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself. #Quote by Lin Yutang
Eulogy quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#97. Eulogy. Praise of a person who has either the advantages of wealth and power, or the consideration to be dead. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Eulogy quotes by James M. Beggs
#98. This day and your life are God's gift to you - so give thanks and be joyful always. #Quote by James M. Beggs
Eulogy quotes by Philip Gulley
#99. People feel guilty enough at funerals without having more guilt heaped on. I would prefer a bighearted preacher giving my eulogy, someone inclined to widen heaven's doors. I don't want to leave folks wondering whether I made it. #Quote by Philip Gulley
Eulogy quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#100. I'm pragmatic. If I were cruel, I'd give him an eulogy instead of a conversation. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Eulogy quotes by John  Wiltshire
#101. Be careful, Benjamin. I would hate to have to work on a eulogy to read at your funeral."
"Shit, just say I was a dumb bastard with weird taste in men and leave it at that."
Nik nodded seriously. "That would work. #Quote by John Wiltshire
Eulogy quotes by Albert Camus
#102. The most eloquent eulogy of capitalism was made by its greatest enemy. Marx is only anti-capitalist in so far as capitalism is out of date. #Quote by Albert Camus
Eulogy quotes by Ronald Reagan
#103. Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for mourning and remembering. Nancy and I are pained to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger. We know we share this pain with all of the people of our country. This is truly a national loss.
Nineteen years ago, almost to the day, we lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But we've never lost an astronaut in flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we've forgotten the courage it took for the crew of the shuttle. But they, the Challenger Seven, were aware of the dangers, but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We mourn seven heroes: Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together.
For the families of the seven, we cannot bear, as you do, the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss, and we're thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones were daring and brave, and they had that special grace, that special spirit that says, "Give me a challenge, and I'll meet it with joy." They had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served all of us.
We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us. But for twenty-five years the United States space p #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Eulogy quotes by Phil Ochs
#104. So good to be alive when the eulogies are read. #Quote by Phil Ochs
Eulogy quotes by Alysia Reiner
#105. From the moment my dad died, from the moment I found out there was the possibility of his dying, there were many surprises - years after, minutes after. The moments I was okay were as surprising as the ones that I wasn't. Making it through the eulogy without losing it. And then the guilt I felt about it. Surprise! #Quote by Alysia Reiner
Eulogy quotes by Nazr Mohammed
#106. A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. #Quote by Nazr Mohammed
Eulogy quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#107. I recall how miserable I was, and how one day you brought me to a realization of my miserable state. I was preparing to deliver a eulogy upon the emperor in which I would tell plenty of lies with the object of winning favor with the well-informed by my lying; so my heart was panting with anxiety and seething with feverish, corruptive thoughts. As I passed through a certain district in Milan I noticed a poor beggar, drunk, as I believe, and making merry. I groaned and pointed out to the friends who were with me how many hardships our idiotic enterprises entailed. Goaded by greed, I was dragging my load of unhappiness along, and feeling it all the heavier for being dragged. Yet while all our efforts were directed solely to the attainment of unclouded joy, it appeared that this beggar had already beaten us to the goal, a goal which we would perhaps never reach ourselves. With the help of the few paltry coins he had collected by begging this man was enjoying the temporal happiness for which I strove by so bitter, devious and roundabout a contrivance. His joy was no true joy, to be sure, but what I was seeking in my ambition was a joy far more unreal; and he was undeniably happy while I was full of foreboding; he was carefree, I apprehensive. If anyone had questioned me as to whether I would rather be exhilarated or afraid, I would of course have replied, "Exhilarated"; but if the questioner had pressed me further, asking whether I preferred to be like the beggar, or to be as I wa #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo

Eulogy quotes by Flann O'Brien
#109. Do you know what I am going to tell you, he said with his wry mouth, a pint of plain is your only man.
Notwithstanding this eulogy, I soon found that the mass of plain porter bears an unsatisfactory relation to its toxic content and I subsequently became addicted to brown stout in bottle, a drink which still remains the one that I prefer the most despite the painful and blinding fits of vomiting which a plurality of bottles has often induced in me. #Quote by Flann O'Brien
Eulogy quotes by William Rotsler
#110. How rare and wonderful is that flash of a moment when we realize we have discovered a friend. #Quote by William Rotsler
Eulogy quotes by Jarod Kintz
#111. I want to write my own eulogy, and I want to write it in Latin. It seems only fitting to read a dead language at my funeral. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Eulogy quotes by Max Lucado
#112. When words are most empty, tears are most apt. #Quote by Max Lucado
Eulogy quotes by Walt Whitman
#113. O captain! My Captain!
Our fearful trip is done.
The ship has weather'd every wrack
The prize we sought is won
The port is near, the bells I hear
The people all exulting
While follow eyes, the steady keel
The vessel grim and daring
But Heart! Heart! Heart!
O the bleeding drops of red
Where on the deck my captain lies
Fallen cold and dead. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Eulogy quotes by John Geddes
#114. If I ever got sloppy and maudlin, it would be for the streets of my childhood - but no self- respecting writer should ever eulogize a slum ... #Quote by John Geddes
Eulogy quotes by William Shakespeare
#115. Done to death by slanderous tongue #Quote by William Shakespeare
Eulogy quotes by Wesley Chu
#116. The world spins despite me, not because of me, he muttered. Last week, one of his coworkers died after twenty-five years of service. There was an email and eulogy sent by one of the managers - and then a mad scramble by everyone else to loot his office supplies. #Quote by Wesley Chu
