Koston Obituary quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#1. As the cleansing ocean closes over bin Laden's carcass, may the earth lie lightly on the countless graves of those he sentenced without compunction to be burned alive or dismembered in the street. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Koston Obituary quotes by Bruce Hoffman
#2. Al-Qaeda's obituary has been written countless times over the decade. Each iteration has proved to be ephemeral, as the moment has continually shown itself to have a deeper bench than we imagine. #Quote by Bruce Hoffman
Koston Obituary quotes by Regina Brett
#3. It's sad that grandkids show up at the end of obituaries, way behind the list of work place achievements, social clubs and survivors. Why last? If you've got grandkids, you know they're first when it comes to the joy in your life. #Quote by Regina Brett
Koston Obituary quotes by David Lat
#4. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#5. He read his own obituary and an editorial lamenting his demise and praising his fortitude and immediately began to think up witty ways of writing to the paper to announce his continued and uninterrupted existence. The other two joined in the game with enthusiasm, and soon all three of them were howling with laughter and emptying bottles at a rate which would have alarmed even a depressed Scandinavian. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Koston Obituary quotes by George Burns
#6. I get up every morning and read the obituary column. If my name's not there, I eat breakfast. #Quote by George Burns

Koston Obituary quotes by Hector Elizondo
#8. I don't wonder about anything. I'm too old to wonder. I think the most important thing is to wake-up with a pulse. I look in the obituary columns. If I'm not in it, I get out of bed. #Quote by Hector Elizondo
Koston Obituary quotes by Laurie Nadel
#9. Producing obituaries is a way of creating a legacy to remember important people of our times and their contributions. No matter whose obituary it is, I look for something inspirational about each person. #Quote by Laurie Nadel
Koston Obituary quotes by Janet Evanovich
#10. Grandma Mazur reads the obituary columns like they're part of the paper's entertainment section. Other communities have country clubs and fraternal orders. The Burg has funeral parlors. If people stopped dying, the social life of the Burg would come to a grinding halt. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Koston Obituary quotes by John Zakour
#11. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Thomas Henry Huxley
#12. Very few, even among those who have taken the keenest interest in the progress of the revolution in natural knowledge set afoot by the publication of the 'Origin of Species'; and who have watched, not without astonishment, the rapid and complete change which has been effected both inside and outside the boundaries of the scientific world in the attitude of men's minds towards the doctrines which are expounded in that great work, can have been prepared for the extraordinary manifestation of affectionate regard for the man, and of profound reverence for the philosopher, which followed the announcement, on Thursday last, of the death of Mr Darwin. #Quote by Thomas Henry Huxley
Koston Obituary quotes by Josiah Willard Gibbs
#13. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Kris Radish
#14. Her Mother's obituary... her last physical link to the woman who helped for the soul of who she was to become, who she remains, who she will always be. She has read the obituary so many times that it looks as if the piece of paper has been through the wash a dozen times. She wonders if she will ever stop reading it. She holds it, as she held her Mother, finally held her Mother once she crossed over the threshold of adulthood herself, & realized the power of a Mother's love for a child. The sacrifices her Mother made that she never appreciated, & that great gift of patience that can only be learned by becoming a mother. #Quote by Kris Radish
Koston Obituary quotes by Tobias Wolff
#15. I'm a survivor, I said. But I didn't think that claim would carry much weight in an obituary. #Quote by Tobias Wolff
Koston Obituary quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#16. God was long gone before Nietzsche made his death certificate into a slogan, but no one
has yet written the obituary of the Devil. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Koston Obituary quotes by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
#17. Women are quoted as sources and appear on interview shows much less frequently than men ... But the by-product of such anonymity may be immortality, for women are also less likely to find themselves written up on the obituary page. #Quote by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
Koston Obituary quotes by Padgett Powell
#18. If you could have a famous writer, dead or alive, write an obituary for you and really puff you up to have been something you weren't, perhaps, or otherwise take liberties with your memory, what writer would you choose? #Quote by Padgett Powell
Koston Obituary quotes by Carrie Fisher
#19. The hairstyle that was chosen would impact how everyone - every filmgoing human - would envision me for the rest of my life. (And probably even beyond - it's hard to imagine any TV obituary not using a photo of that cute little round-faced girl with goofy buns on either side of her inexperienced head.) #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Koston Obituary quotes by Oliver Bullough
#20. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Freeman Dyson
#21. If you don't have a nasty obituary you probably didn't matter. #Quote by Freeman Dyson
Koston Obituary quotes by Rick Riordan
#22. AFTER THEIR FALL INTO TARTARUS, jumping three hundred feet to the Mansion of Night should have felt quick. Instead, Annabeth's heart seemed to slow down. Between the beats she had ample time to write her own obituary. Annabeth Chase, died age 17. BA-BOOM. (Assuming her birthday, July 12, had passed while she was in Tartarus; but honestly, she had no idea.) BA-BOOM. Died of massive injuries while leaping like an idiot into the abyss of Chaos and splattering on the entry hall floor of Nyx's mansion. BA-BOOM. Survived by her father, stepmother, and two stepbrothers who barely knew her. BA-BOOM. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Camp Half-Blood, assuming Gaea hasn't already destroyed it. Her feet hit solid floor. Pain shot up her legs, but she stumbled forward and broke into a run, hauling Percy after her. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Koston Obituary quotes by Mark Morford
#23. The lions of hard rock, guys like Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, Brian Johnson, Rob Halford, these monsters feel completely timeless, iconic, eternal. They simply shall not, will not, do not die. It's almost impossible to imagine a musical world without Robert Plant. No metal fan of any stripe can imagine a day when, say, Iron Maiden shuts it all down because Bruce Dickinson turned 85 and suddenly can't remember the lyrics to "Hallowed Be Thy Name." Metal revels in the raw energy and unchecked phantasmagorical ridiculousness of youth. It is all fire and testosterone and rebellious fantasy. It doesn't go well with reality.

So it is for hard rock and a guy like Dio, an elfin titan with an undying love for lasers and sorcery, dragons and kings. The man wrote some terribly corny metal songs, but he sang every one with a ferocity and love and total honesty. He also wrote some of the finest hard rock melodies of all time, sang them with a precision and love unmatched by any hard rock singer since. It's a rare thing to give metal some heartfelt props. It is time. Raise your devil horns and salute. #Quote by Mark Morford
Koston Obituary quotes by George Jean Nathan
#24. A life spent in constant labor is a life wasted, save a man be such a fool as to regard a fulsome obituary notice as ample reward. #Quote by George Jean Nathan
Koston Obituary quotes by Josephine Tey
#25. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Kate Morton
#26. Aside from her marriage, her obituary is the only time a lady's name should appear in the newspaper. And God help her if the funeral is savaged in the press, for she won't get a second chance the following season. #Quote by Kate Morton
Koston Obituary quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#27. Until today, you may not have realized that your life provides the content of your obituary. Just for today, examine your life. Think about all of the things you want to leave behind. Remember, the good thing about doing this today is that you still have time to rewrite your life's content if necessary. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Koston Obituary quotes by Spencer Abraham
#28. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Eric Koston
#29. The year was 1996, Guy Mariano and I had no clothing sponsors, and at that point in our lives we had purchased enough Polo, Hilfiger and Nautica gear to think, hey, maybe we should start a clothing company. #Quote by Eric Koston
Koston Obituary quotes by Eric Koston
#30. I just kick a heelflip out - frontside 180, jump in the air and pray. #Quote by Eric Koston
Koston Obituary quotes by Robert W. Service
#31. The following obituary appeared in the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph of Sept. 16, 1958:

A GREAT POET died last week in Lancieux, France, at the age of 84.

He was not a poet's poet. Fancy-Dan dilletantes will dispute the description "great."

He was a people's poet. To the people he was great. They understood him, and knew that any verse carrying the by-line of Robert W. Service would be a lilting thing, clear, clean and power-packed, beating out a story with a dramatic intensity that made the nerves tingle.

And he was no poor, garret-type poet, either. His stuff made money hand over fist. One piece alone, The Shooting of Dan McGrew, rolled up half a million dollars for him. He lived it up well and also gave a great deal to help others.

"The only society I like," he once said, "is that which is rough and tough - and the tougher the better. That's where you get down to bedrock and meet human people."

He found that kind of society in the Yukon gold rush, and he immortalized it. #Quote by Robert W. Service
Koston Obituary quotes by Jill Conner Browne
#32. Stay fit and live long and prosper, but write your own obituary now, while you can, just in case. #Quote by Jill Conner Browne
Koston Obituary quotes by Brendan Behan
#33. All publicity is good, except an obituary notice. #Quote by Brendan Behan
Koston Obituary quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#34. It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Koston Obituary quotes by Kim Cormack
#35. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. Nothing is dead: men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals and mournful obituaries, and there they stand looking out ofthe window, sound and well, in some new and strange disguise. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Koston Obituary quotes by George Ade
#37. Do not give alms promiscuously. Select the unworthy poor and make them happy. To give to the deserving is a duty, but to help the improvident, drinking class is clear generosity, so that the donor has a right to be warmed by a selfish pride and count on a most flattering obituary. #Quote by George Ade
Koston Obituary quotes by Robert Kennedy
#38. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Norm Crosby
#39. My school was so tough the school newspaper had an obituary section. #Quote by Norm Crosby
Koston Obituary quotes by Anna Quindlen
#40. [I]n contrast to the common belief that they are the world's greatest cynics, the best journalists are the world's great idealists. They have experienced firsthand the great soothing balance of human existence. For every disgrace there is triumph, for every wrong there is a moment of justice, for every funeral a wedding, for every obituary a birth announcement. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Koston Obituary quotes by Abigail Roux
#41. 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
Koston Obituary quotes by Darrell Case
#42. Live in such a way no one who reads your obituary will be surprised you're a Christian. #Quote by Darrell Case
Koston Obituary quotes by Brendan Behan
#43. There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary. #Quote by Brendan Behan
Koston Obituary quotes by Arthur Smith
