Poetry Death quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#1. Do you remember the sight we saw, my soul,
that soft summer morning
round a turning in the path,
the disgusting carcass on a bed scattered with stones,
its legs in the air like a woman in need
burning its wedding poisons
like a fountain with its rhythmic sobs,
I could hear it clearly flowing with a long murmuring sound,
but I touch my body in vain to find the wound.
I am the vampire of my own heart,
one of the great outcasts condemned to eternal laughter
who can no longer smile.
Am I dead?
I must be dead. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Poetry Death quotes by C.D. Wright
#2. Poetry is the language of intensity. Because we are going to die, an expression of intensity is justified. #Quote by C.D. Wright
Poetry Death quotes by Richard Ronald Allan
#3. Contemplating from the confines of a desk the reality of death is worthwhile, but only moderately enriching. Too often do I resort to it; rarely do I get with death in the ring. #Quote by Richard Ronald Allan
Poetry Death quotes by Justin Wetch
#4. We are a handful of dust in God's image
Before we return again to dusty grave
Life isn't a war, it's a scrimmage
A hyphen between two dates. #Quote by Justin Wetch
Poetry Death quotes by Ezra Pound
#5. I desired my dust to be mingled with yours
Forever and forever and forever. #Quote by Ezra Pound
Poetry Death quotes by Sally Mann
#6. I have had a fascination with death, I think, that might be considered genetic for a long time. My father had the same affliction, I guess. #Quote by Sally Mann
Poetry Death quotes by Harper Lee
#7. It begins by the wives being bored to death because their men are so tired from making money they don't pay any attention to 'em. But when their wives start hollering, instead of trying to understand why, the men just go find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Then when they get tired of talking about themselves they go back to their wives. Everything's rosy for a while, but the men get tired and their wives start yellin' again and around it goes. Men in this age have turned the Other Woman into a psychiatrist's couch, and at far less expense, too. #Quote by Harper Lee
Poetry Death quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#8. But since those Romans were in an earthly city, and had before them, as the end of all the offices undertaken in its behalf, its safety, and a kingdom, not in heaven, but in earth - not in the sphere of eternal life, but in the sphere of demise and succession, where the dead are succeeded by the dying - what else but glory should they love, by which they wished even after death to live in the mouths of their admirers? #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Poetry Death quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#9. If we cannot be torn in pieces by the roaring lion, if we may be hugged to death by the bear, the devil little cares which it is, so long as he destroys our love to Christ, and our confidence in Him. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Poetry Death quotes by Philip Roth
#10. But from within the carton, Morty's American flag - which I know is folded there, at the very bottom, in the official way - tells me, "It's against some Jewish law," and so, on into the car he went with the carton, and then he drove it down to the beach, to the boardwalk, which was no longer there. The boardwalk was gone. Good-bye, boardwalk. The ocean had finally carried it away. The Atlantic is a powerful ocean. Death is a terrible thing. That's a doctor I never heard of. Remarkable. Yes, that's the word for it. It was all remarkable. Good-bye, remarkable. Egypt and Greece good-bye, and good-bye, Rome! #Quote by Philip Roth
Poetry Death quotes by Brandon Scott Gorrell
#11. Holding a tiny dixie cup in my hand makes me feel like a giant human being that can crush things #Quote by Brandon Scott Gorrell
Poetry Death quotes by Adeline Sergeant
#12. If there had been a moment when the hearts of his enemies were softened, when a throb of pity was felt even by Sydney Vane's elder brother, the implacable old General who had vowed that he would pursue Andrew Westwood to the death, it was when the prisoner's little daughter had been put into the witness-box to give evidence against her father. #Quote by Adeline Sergeant
Poetry Death quotes by J.K. Rowling
#13. There is life beyond death ... never fear what can be escaped. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Poetry Death quotes by Katherine Dunn
#14. Beside Mama, in my own folding chair, with my feet sticking out in front of me, I thought about my own innards. Just a few months before I'd had no idea whether my reproductive equipment worked. There was no evidence. But that week I had become a full-fledged bleeder and was still absorbed by this first change in myself that I had ever noticed. The click and buzz of my synapses kept making the same connection. If you can change, you can also end. Death had always been a theory to me. Now I knew. The terror hurt good and I nursed it and played it like a loose tooth. #Quote by Katherine Dunn
Poetry Death quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#15. Death, torture and prison are part of daily life for the youth of Iran. They are not like us, my friends and I at their age; they are not scared. They are not what we were. They hold hands and scream: 'Don't be afraid! Don't be afraid! We are together!' They understand that no one will give them their rights; they must go get them. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Poetry Death quotes by William S. Burroughs
#16. Junk turns the user into a plant. Plants do not feel pain since pain has no function in a stationary organism. Junk is a pain killer. A plant has no libido in the human or animal sense. Junk replaces the sex drive. Seeding is the sex of the plant and the function of opium is to delay seeding.
Perhaps the intense discomfort of withdrawal is the transition from plant back to animal, from a painless, sexless, timeless state back to sex and pain and time, from death back to life. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Poetry Death quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#17. Speeches that are measured by the hour will die with the hour. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Poetry Death quotes by Paul Valery
#18. Poetry is a separate language, or more specifically, a language within a language. #Quote by Paul Valery
Poetry Death quotes by Don DeLillo
#19. Why shouldn't the death of a person you love bring you into lurid ruin? You don't know how to love the one you love until they disappear abruptly. Then you understand how thinly distanced from their suffering, how sparing of self you often were, only rarely unguarded of heart, working your networks of give-and-take. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Poetry Death quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#20. Learning has no end until the day of death. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Poetry Death quotes by Jack London
#21. And all the while the four men lay beside me and watched and made no move. Nor did I move, and without shame I say it; though my reason was compelled to struggle hard against my natural impulse to rise up and interfere. I knew life. Of what use to the woman, or to me, would be my being beaten to death by five men there on the bank of the Susquehanna? I once saw a man hanged, and though my whole soul cried protest, my mouth cried not. Had it cried, I should most likely have had my skull crushed by the butt of a revolver, for it was the law that the man should hang. And here, in this gypsy group, it was the law that the woman should be whipped.

Even so, the reason in both cases that I did not interfere was not that it was the law, but that the law was stronger than I. Had it not been for those four men beside me in the grass, right gladly would I have waded into the man with the whip. And, barring the accident of the landing on me with a knife or a club in the hands of some of the various women of the camp, I am confident that I should have beaten him into a mess. But the four men were beside me in the grass. They made their law stronger than I. #Quote by Jack London
Poetry Death quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#22. Love is the only thing that pays for birth, Or makes death welcome. Oh, dear God above This beautiful but sad, perplexing earth, Pity the hearts that know
or know not
Love! #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Poetry Death quotes by Allan Bloom
#23. The de-eroticization of the world, a companion to its disenchantment ... seems to result from a combination of causes our democratic regime and its tendencies toward leveling and self-protection, a reductionist-materialist science that inevitably interprets eros as sex, and the atmosphere generated by "the death of God" and of the subordinate god, Eros. #Quote by Allan Bloom
Poetry Death quotes by John Zea
#24. My life is so empty, that even death doesn't wont to take me! #Quote by John Zea
Poetry Death quotes by William Wordsworth
#25. Upon Westminster Bridge
Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still! #Quote by William Wordsworth
Poetry Death quotes by Ted Hughes
#26. Black was the without eye
Black the within tongue
Black was the heart
Black the liver, black the lungs
Unable to suck in light
Black the blood in its loud tunnel
Black the bowels packed in furnace
Black too the muscles
Striving to pull out into the light
Black the nerves, black the brain
With its tombed visions
Black also the soul, the huge stammer
Of the cry that, swelling, could not
Pronounce its sun. #Quote by Ted Hughes
Poetry Death quotes by Robert Jordan
#27. Only five of the Bodyguards reached Fal Moran alive, every man wounded, but they had the child unharmed. From the cradle they taught him all they knew. He learned weapons as other children learn toys, and the Blight as other children their mother's garden. The oath sworn over his cradle is graven in his mind. There is nothing left to defend, but he can avenge. He denies his titles, yet in the Borderlands he is called the Uncrowned, and if ever he raised the Golden Crane of Malkier, an army would come to follow. But he will not lead men to their deaths. In the Blight he courts death as a suitor courts a maiden, but he will not lead others to it. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Poetry Death quotes by Melina Marchetta
#28. You've been quiet these past days," Trevanion said. "Are you going to tell me what the ... exchange of words was about?"
"Who said there was an exchange of words?" Finnikin asked with irritation.
"When a woman says 'I hope you fall under your horse' and 'catch your death, then see if I grieve you,'" Perri said, "then there's been an exchange of words."
Finnikin glared at him.
"In my humble opinion. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Poetry Death quotes by Edward McKendree Bounds
#29. God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God's heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world. #Quote by Edward McKendree Bounds
Poetry Death quotes by Gloria D. Gonsalves
#30. Poetry is not for poets, poetry lovers or perceived poetic persons only.
Poetry is in yourself, others and everything of nature and man-made.
Poetry may not be a solution, yet it can reveal or ease challenges faced.
Poetry is capable of affecting any heart. #Quote by Gloria D. Gonsalves
Poetry Death quotes by Anonymous
#31. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. #Quote by Anonymous
Poetry Death quotes by Todd Stocker
#32. Death is just the door through which we experience true Life. #Quote by Todd Stocker
Poetry Death quotes by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
#33. She never even told me how she felt," Valerie thought aloud, feeling the betrayal in her gut. How had she been so blind? Her sister had loved Henry silently. Did she know about the engagement? Did she overhear our parents planning? Valerie supposed it was possible, but it seemed unlikely since they were always together. Would it have broken her heart?
"Don't worry, you poor child," Madame Lazar said, seeming almost disinterested in the subject of Lucie's death. "I know you're worried about your sister, but Henry always had his eye on you. You are - were always the pretty one. #Quote by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
Poetry Death quotes by Harpreet Singh Nanda
#34. Some prayers will meet with silence but then there is worth in every death. #Quote by Harpreet Singh Nanda
Poetry Death quotes by George R R Martin
#35. Proud men might shout that they would sooner die free than live as slaves, but pride was cheap. When the steel struck the flint, such men were rare as dragon's teeth; elsewise the world would not have been so full of slaves. There has never been a slave who did not choose to be a slave, the dwarf reflected. Their choice may be between bondage and death, but the choice is always there. #Quote by George R R Martin
Poetry Death quotes by Lyz Lenz
#36. Two men came to look for Jesus and he told them about death. Put a seed into the ground and let it die. Only then can it grow.

Seeds outside of soil are inert things. Put into the ground, a seed falls apart -- it becomes a fluid nourishment to the seedling. It's a dissolution. A rearrangement of the elements. #Quote by Lyz Lenz
Poetry Death quotes by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
#37. This human need for mysticism – surrender to an unknown truth, union – stands at the helm of all romantic feeling. It is, in essence, the same intimacy known in a mother's arms; in those who are deprived of the experience, the need freezes and, distorted, it can rent a life. All addiction has as its foundation skewed yearning for the same transcendence. For me, the spell of the material was broken by my brother's death; after his suicide, all I wanted was the renewal of my connection to the intangible. #Quote by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Poetry Death quotes by Renato Castro Pasion Jr.
#38. Ultimately, Education is an individual responsibility. #Quote by Renato Castro Pasion Jr.
Poetry Death quotes by Ilona Andrews
#39. Those who remain have forgotten they are alive. They think they have more in common with their fallen than with their enemy. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know the difference between life and death. Two live beings from the opposite boundaries of the galaxy have infinitely more in common with each other than the living and the dead from the same family. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Poetry Death quotes by Dean Koontz
#40. Death is part of life. If you think about it, you were born into a world populated by the dead, because #Quote by Dean Koontz
Poetry Death quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#41. If it had been an outright junkyard, probably he could have stuck things out, made a career: the violence that had caused each wreck being infrequent enough, far enough away from him, to be miraculous, as each death, up till the moment of our own, is miraculous. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
