#7. Do not give alms promiscuously. Select the unworthy poor and make them happy.

Novakowski Obituary quotes by Rick Riordan
#8. 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.

Novakowski Obituary quotes by Michael Connelly
#12. EVEN THOUGH I KNEW it was going to be what she would ask me, Graciela McCaleb's request gave me pause. Terry McCaleb had died on his boat a month earlier. I had read about it in the Las Vegas Sun. It had made the papers because of the movie. FBI agent gets heart transplant and then tracks down his donor's killer. It was a story that had Hollywood written all over it and Clint Eastwood played the part, even though he had a couple decades on Terry. The film was a modest success at best, but it still gave Terry the kind of notoriety that guaranteed an obituary notice in papers across the country. I had just gotten back to my apartment near the strip one morning and picked up the Sun. Terry's death was a short story in the back of the A section. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Josephine Tey
#13. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Roger Maris
#14. It's like obituaries, when you die they finally give you good reviews. #Quote by Roger Maris

Novakowski Obituary quotes by Anna Quindlen
#16. [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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Darrell Issa
#17. Some people want to amass a great amount of wealth and make a great looking obituary. I'm going to die with more money than is good to leave my son. #Quote by Darrell Issa
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#18. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#19. 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

#21. All publicity is good, except an obituary notice. #Quote by Brendan Behan
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Tom Rachman
#22. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Peter Utley
#23. An obituary should be an exercise in contemporary history, not a funeral oration. #Quote by Peter Utley
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Josiah Willard Gibbs
#24. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Mason Cooley
#25. Metaphysics keeps surviving its obituaries. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
#26. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Robert Kennedy
#27. 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

it's the obituaries. #Quote by Evan Esar

has yet written the obituary of the Devil. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Laura Trentham
#31. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Tobias Wolff
#32. I'm a survivor, I said. But I didn't think that claim would carry much weight in an obituary. #Quote by Tobias Wolff
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Darrell Case
#33. Live in such a way no one who reads your obituary will be surprised you're a Christian. #Quote by Darrell Case
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Jandy Nelson
#34. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by George Burns
#35. I get up every morning and read the obituary column. If my name's not there, I eat breakfast. #Quote by George Burns
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Jill Conner Browne
#36. Stay fit and live long and prosper, but write your own obituary now, while you can, just in case. #Quote by Jill Conner Browne
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Rick Riordan
#37. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Deborah Copaken
#38. It's 2013 ... The Time's obituary for Yvonne Brill, renowned rocket scientist, winner of the National Medal of Technology and Innovations, leads with, 'She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job and took eight years off from work to raise three children. "The world's best mom," her son Matthew said. #Quote by Deborah Copaken
Novakowski Obituary quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#39. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by George Jackson
#40. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by Thomas Henry Huxley
#41. 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
Novakowski Obituary quotes by George Jean Nathan
#42. 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
