Suicide quotes by Claire Forlani
#1. Depression is close to me, but suicide hasn't been. #Quote by Claire Forlani
Suicide quotes by Herodotus
#2. Great deeds are usually wrought at great risks #Quote by Herodotus
Suicide quotes by Project Itoh
#3. The instant the old folks had entered their codes and the Harmony program had begun to sing, suicide disappeared from human society. Nearly all battles ceased. The individual was no longer a unit. The entire social system was the unit. By losing its sense of self and self-awareness, society had been freed from the pain it suffered because its systems had relied on imperfect humans, arriving for the first time at a perfect bliss. I am a part of the system, as you are part of the system. No one felt any pain about that any longer. There was no "me" to feel pain. I had been replaced by a single... #Quote by Project Itoh
Suicide quotes by Yiyun Li
#4. People who have not experienced a suicidal urge miss a crucial point. It is not that one wants to end one's life, but that the only way to end the pain - that eternal fight against one's melodrama so that it does not transgress - is to wipe out the body. I distrust judgments - Mann's or anyone's - on suicide. They are, in the end, judgments on feelings. #Quote by Yiyun Li
Suicide quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#5. Being in a relationship has the tendency to deceive one into believing that there is someone without whom one cannot live. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Suicide quotes by Marsha Norman
#6. Jesus was a suicide, if you ask me. #Quote by Marsha Norman
Suicide quotes by Terri Fields
#7. And the only answer I know is
That no child should give up on life.
Math deals in absolutes.
But life is the most absolute of all. #Quote by Terri Fields
Suicide quotes by Adrienne Rich
#8. They can rule the world while they can persuade us our pain belongs in some order is death by famine worse than death by suicide, than a life of famine and suicide? #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Suicide quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#9. And so I have to live. Because we live for more than just ourselves, Most of the time we live for others, keep putting one foot before the other, left and right, left and right, so that walking becomes a habit, just like breathing. Ina n out, left and right. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Suicide quotes by Hirokazu Koreeda
#10. I don't believe in making movies to cater to a foreign audience. You never know what the reaction is going to be anyhow. At the time I made Maborosi, the Japanese movies getting any foreign attention were all period dramas and seemed to be about some representative element of Japanese life, and my movie was contemporary movie about one specific woman trying to understand her husband's suicide. #Quote by Hirokazu Koreeda
Suicide quotes by Warren Ellis
#11. By four o'clock, I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Suicide quotes by Chris Hedges
#12. The rebel, dismissed as impractical and zealous, is chronically misunderstood. Those cursed with timidity, fear, or blindness and those who are slaves to opportunism call for moderation and patience. They distort the language of religion, spirituality, compromise, generosity, and compassion to justify cooperation with systems of power that are bent on our destruction. The rebel is deaf to these critiques. The rebel hears only his or her inner voice, which demands steadfast defiance. Self-promotion, positions of influence, the adulation of the public, and the awards and prominent positions that come with bowing before authority mean nothing to the rebel, who understands that virtue is not rewarded. The rebel expects nothing and gets nothing. But for the rebel, to refuse to struggle, to refuse to rebel, is to commit spiritual and moral suicide. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Suicide quotes by John Fowles
#13. I was worse off than even Alison was; she hated life, I hated mysef. I had created nothing, I belonged to nothingness, to the néant, and it seemed to me that my own death was the only thing left that I could create. #Quote by John Fowles
Suicide quotes by Nanavira Thera
#14. A man may take his own life for many reasons, and it is impossible to make a general statement; but whenever suicide is a gesture - done, that is, to impress or influence or embarrass others - it is always, so it seems to me, a sign of immaturity and muddled thinking. However much we may admire the fortitude of this Vietnamese monk, the wisdom of his action remains very much in doubt. I do not know the details of the provocation offered by the Catholic Head of State, but the monk appears to have killed himself 'fighting for the cause of Buddhism'. Certainly this action is infinitely more honourable than the setting fire to churches and the crowning of statues that seem to be the favoured methods of giving battle in this country; but it does not follow that it is any the less misguided. #Quote by Nanavira Thera
Suicide quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#15. How destiny plays games so thrilling,
both stay in the same building.
His books declared for the best seller of the year,
and she lives in the apartment to his but upstairs.
He is making fame, she has committed suicide severe.


The same window of the tall building instigated,
such varied colors.

In the woman-frustration and fear.
In the man- an inspiration so rare.
They share the same height, same sight,
of the same building.
From which,
one flew like kite and the other down right. #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Suicide quotes by Veronica Roth
#16. Eric called Al's suicide brave, and he was wrong. My mother's death was brave. I remember how calm she was, how determined. It isn't just brave that she died for me; it is brave that she did it without announcing it, without hesitation, and without appearing to consider another option. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Suicide quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#17. Someone will say, "I did not ask to be born." This is a naive way of throwing greater emphasis on our facticity. I am responsible for everything, in fact,
except for my very responsibility, for I am not the foundation of my being. Therefore everything takes place as if I were compelled to be responsible. I am abandoned in the world, not in the sense that I might remain abandoned and passive in a hostile universe like a board floating on the water, but rather in the sense that I find myself suddenly alone and without help, engaged in a world for which I bear the whole responsibility without being able, whatever I do, to tear myself away from this responsibility for an instant. For I am responsible for my very desire of fleeing responsibilities. To make myself passive in the world, to refuse to act upon things and upon Others is still to choose myself, and suicide is one mode among others of being-in-the-world. Yet I find an absolute responsibility for the fact that my facticity (here the fact of my birth) is directly inapprehensible and even inconceivable, for this fact of my birth never appears as a brute fact but always across a projective reconstruction of my for-itself. I am ashamed of being born or I am astonished at it or I rejoice over it, or in attempting to get rid of my life I affirm that I live and I assume this life as bad. Thus in a certain sense I choose being born. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Suicide quotes by Steve McHugh
#18. You interrogated a man at Hades's compound a year ago. I heard what you did to him. I can't have dead prisoners here; we have to be better than that." "I didn't kill him," I objected, remembering the murderous bastard who'd tried to kill Hades before he'd been caught. Unfortunately we hadn't stopped him from killing his own wife and children. "You took his hands. You know he killed himself in our jail?" "Yeah, well, I'm not going to kill anyone. Just talk. They wanted to kill me back in Southampton, now they want to take me to talk. I'd like to know why. And I heard your prisoner died by getting into a fight with another prisoner." "He walked up to a cave troll and kicked him. The troll tore his head off and threw it fifty feet away. What would you call that?" "Suicide by troll. That's new. #Quote by Steve McHugh
Suicide quotes by Zane Grey
#19. What makes life worth living? Better surely, to yield to the stain of suicide blood in me and seek forgetfulness in the embrace of cold dark death. #Quote by Zane Grey
Suicide quotes by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
#20. Does any man have the right to dispose of his own life? This is the ultimate question of moral entitlement, and relevant only if right is relevant in this context, and it is not. A suicidal man cannot be concerned - and nor should he be - with questions of moral entitlement. (And how absurd.) His one concern should be whether self-execution will most expediently relieve his suffering. #Quote by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Suicide quotes by Robin Wasserman
#21. Eli: 'If a machine like that really existed, people would be willing to kill for it. Lots of people.'
Nora: 'Yeah, and if hot vampires really existed, suicide would be a viable option for wrinkle prevention. Your point? #Quote by Robin Wasserman
Suicide quotes by Henri Barbusse
#22. Two armies that fight each other is like one large army that commits suicide. #Quote by Henri Barbusse
Suicide quotes by David Benatar
#23. It is not the case that one can create new people on the assumption that if they are not pleased to have come into existence they can simply kill themselves. Once somebody has come into existence and attachments with that person have been formed, suicide can cause the kind of pain that makes the pain of childlessness mild by comparison. Somebody contemplating suicide knows (or should know) this. This places an important obstacle in the way of suicide. One's life may be bad, but one must consider what affect ending it would have on one's family and friends. There will be times when life has become so bad that it is unreasonable for the interests of the loved ones in having the person alive to outweigh that person's interests in ceasing to exist. When this is true will depend in part on particular features of the person for whom continued life is a burden. Different people are able to bear different magnitudes of burden. It may even be indecent for family members to expect that person to continue living. On other occasions one's life may be bad but not so bad as to warrant killing oneself and thereby making the lives of one's family and friends still much worse than they already are. #Quote by David Benatar
Suicide quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#24. If you are of the opinion that the contemplation of suicide is sufficient evidence of a poetic nature, do not forget that actions speak louder than words. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Suicide quotes by Jacques Tardi
#25. The leave zipped right by. We were so terrifically glad to be back to our own little section of the trench, with all its happy memories, that we wouldn't have traded places with anybody.

The lazy bastard who'd filled in while we were away hadn't managed to nibble away so much as an inch of garden soil in the direction of Berlin.

We found out that Brugnon hadn't come back from leave. He'd hanged himself in the stairwell of his building, on rue des Gâtines. He left a note to say he couldn't take it any more and asked us to count him out. We accepted it… Who were we to judge? #Quote by Jacques Tardi
Suicide quotes by John Steinbeck
#26. (Suicide) takes some doing, with maybe pain and maybe hell. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Suicide quotes by Ned Vizzini
#27. I didn't want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that's really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you're so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare. #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Suicide quotes by Brent Weeks
#28. Count Drake had told him that life was precious, that suicide was a coward's way out, a sin against the God by flinging his gift back in his holy face. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Suicide quotes by Chila Woychik
#29. I don't need to write. Madness or suicide are other options, though not nearly as compelling. But I want to create; I hope to create worlds in my own image, admittedly a self-centered plan. I want others to understand me better, pay more attention to me, like or love me for who I am. Maybe that's it. Or maybe I should simply learn to say, Let's have lunch. #Quote by Chila Woychik
Suicide quotes by Pattie Mallette
#30. One day I was 17 years old and I ended up trying to commit suicide and I ended up in the hospital. As a teenager, that was a really scary thing. #Quote by Pattie Mallette
Suicide quotes by Terri Fields
#31. Since September,
I sat one seat behind Anna in algebra.
Passed papers to her every day.
Studied for tons of tests together.
Though it often seemed impossible,
Eventually,
We always found the unknown for X.
But not this time.
This equation
Bounces against my brain.
And sneers at all attempted answers.
I know I'll re-examine the variables,
And reanalyze the unknowns, maybe forever.
But
It won't matter.
Because, Anna-
I know I'll never figure out Y.
Y you didn't want to live-
And Y I never noticed. #Quote by Terri Fields
Suicide quotes by David J. Lieberman
#32. Suicide is the dumbest possible way of getting revenge. Why is that? Because the people you want to strike back at are the very same folks who won't even remember you a week after you're gone, while the people you want to spare most
the people who love you
are the ones who will have to live with the pain of your suicide for the rest of their lives. #Quote by David J. Lieberman
Suicide quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#33. I can't believe that we have reached the end of everything. The red dust is frightening. The carbon dioxide is real. Water is expensive. Bio-tech has created as many problems as it has fixed, but we're here, we're alive, we're the human race, we have survived wars and terrorism and scarcity and global famine, and we have made it back from the brink, not once but many times. History is not a suicide note - it's a record of our survival. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Suicide quotes by Rajneesh
#34. I celebrate myself, and I hope soon the day will come you will be celebrating yourself. And when thousands and thousands of people around the earth are celebrating, singing, dancing, ecstatic, drunk with the divine, there is no possibility of any global suicide. With such festivity and with such laughter, with such sanity and health, with such naturalness and spontaneity, how can there be a war? #Quote by Rajneesh
Suicide quotes by Jonathan Ames
#35. I felt myself falling asleep; my eyes were closing, and then I thought, Maybe I should just kill myself. Suicidal thoughts always sneak up on me like that. But I don't mind them. They're like aspirin. They calm me down. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Suicide quotes by Bertrand Russell
#36. In adolescence, I hated life and was continually on the verge of suicide, from which, however, I was restrained by the desire to know more mathematics. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Suicide quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#37. Young Tchitcherine was the one who brought up political narcotics. Opiates of the people.

Wimpe smiled back. An old, old smile to chill even the living fire in Earth's core. "Marxist dialectics? That's not an opiate, eh?"

"It's the antidote."

"No." It can go either way. The dope salesman may know everything that's ever going to happen to Tchitcherine, and decide it's no use - or, out of the moment's velleity, lay it right out for the young fool.

"The basic problem," he proposes, "has always been getting other people to die for you. What's worth enough for a man to give up his life? That's where religion had the edge, for centuries. Religion was always about death. It was used not as an opiate so much as a technique - it got people to die for one particular set of beliefs about death. Perverse, natürlich, but who are you to judge? It was a good pitch while it worked. But ever since it became impossible to die for death, we have had a secular version - yours. Die to help History grow to its predestined shape. Die knowing your act will bring will bring a good end a bit closer. Revolutionary suicide, fine. But look: if History's changes are inevitable, why not not die? Vaslav? If it's going to happen anyway, what does it matter?"

"But you haven't ever had the choice to make, have you."

"If I ever did, you can be sure - "

"You don't know. Not till you're there, Wimpe. You can't say."

"That does #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Suicide quotes by Pope Francis
#38. Environmental degradation is one of the biggest challenges we have. I think a question that we're not asking ourselves is: 'Isn't humanity committing suicide with this indiscriminate and tyrannical use of nature?' #Quote by Pope Francis
Suicide quotes by Pete Wentz
#39. I wonder if killing yourself is the only thing you can control in your entire life, and that's why it's a sin. Because you're beating God at his own game. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Suicide quotes by Lindsey Stirling
#40. By finding the courage to be ourselves, we gain the power to make a difference. #Quote by Lindsey Stirling
Suicide quotes by S.A. Tawks
#41. Honestly, if I stay on this gruelling path, I'm going to end up as another suicide statistic. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Suicide quotes by Pope John Paul II
#42. Euthanasia and assisted suicide are never acceptable acts of mercy. They always gravely exploit the suffering and desperate, extinguishing life in the name of the 'quality of life' itself. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Suicide quotes by Svetlana Alliluyeva
#43. It became clear to the whole world that a totalitarian regime could neither accuse nor transform itself: suicide was not in its nature, it could only kill others. #Quote by Svetlana Alliluyeva
Suicide quotes by John Piper
#44. God did not just overcome evil at the cross. He made evil serve the overcoming of evil. He made evil commit suicide in doing its worst evil. #Quote by John Piper
Suicide quotes by David Mitchell
#45. Finished in a frenzy that reminded me of our last night in Cambridge. Watched my final sunrise. Enjoyed a last cigarette. Didn't think the view could be any more perfect until I saw that beat-up trilby. Honestly, Sixsmith, as ridiculous as that thing makes you look, I don't believe I've ever seen anything more beautiful. Watched you for as long as I dared. I don't believe it was a fluke that I saw you first. I believe there is another world waiting for us, Sixsmith. A better world, and I'll be waiting for you there. I believe we do not stay dead long. Find me beneath the Corsican stars, where we first kissed.
Yours eternally, R.F. #Quote by David Mitchell
Suicide quotes by Charles Bukowski
#46. Yes Yes
when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low
when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountains and the sea and fire at the same time
He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Suicide quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#47. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Suicide quotes by George Carlin
#48. I couldn't commit suicide if my life depended on it. #Quote by George Carlin
Suicide quotes by Gerard Way
#49. Don't piss your life away with suicide ... it's a bullshit way out. #Quote by Gerard Way
Suicide quotes by Ehsan Sehgal
#50. One, who suicides, is itself a killer and itself a victim. To trigger that has its decision, and own willingness, no one else. #Quote by Ehsan Sehgal
Suicide quotes by Thomas Merton
#51. We must be willing to accept the bitter truth that, in the end, we may have to become a burden to those who love us. But it is necessary that we face this also. The full acceptance of our abjection and uselessness is the virtue that can make us and others rich in the grace of God. It takes heroic charity and humility to let others sustain us when we are absolutely incapable of sustaining ourselves. We cannot suffer well unless we see Christ everywhere, both in suffering and in the charity of those who come to the aid of our affliction. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Suicide quotes by Adam Ant
#52. I wanted to make good records. But my problem is I've got a low boredom threshold, so I wanted it to look and sound different with each album, which is really tantamount to suicide, cause people lose it, they lose it - they say: 'I like that, and that's not this.' #Quote by Adam Ant
Suicide quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#53. If you go to Heaven without being naturally qualified for it you will not enjoy yourself there. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Suicide quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#54. He must not merely cling to life, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape. He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape. He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Suicide quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#55. Last week I told my psychiatrist, 'I keep thinking about suicide', and he told me from now I have to pay in advance. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Suicide quotes by Albert Camus
#56. Don't think for a minute that your friends will telephone you every evening, as they ought to, in order to find out if this doesn't happen to be the evening when you are deciding to commit suicide, or simply whether you don't need company, whether you are not in the mood to go out. No, don't worry, they'll ring up the evening you are not alone, when life is beautiful. #Quote by Albert Camus
Suicide quotes by Julian Barnes
#57. Like what? The things Literature was all about: love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God. And barn owls. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Suicide quotes by Lina Wertmuller
#58. I don't think suicide is so terrible. Some rainy winter Sundays when there's a little boredom, you should always carry a gun. Not to shoot yourself, but to know exactly that you're always making a choice. #Quote by Lina Wertmuller
Suicide quotes by Elizabeth Blair Lee
#59. Anger is the poorest of counselors, and revenge is suicide. #Quote by Elizabeth Blair Lee
Suicide quotes by Anna Wickham
#60. I feel that women of my kind are a profound mistake. There have been few women poets of distinction, and, if we count only the suicides of Sappho, Lawrence Hope and Charlotte Mew, their despair rate has been very high. #Quote by Anna Wickham
Suicide quotes by Auberon Waugh
#61. There is an old story about the boy at Eton who committed suicide. The other boys in his house were gathered together and asked if any of them could suggest a reason for the tragedy. After a long silence a small boy in the front put up his hand: 'Could it have been the food, sir? #Quote by Auberon Waugh
Suicide quotes by Zadie Smith
#62. No matter what anyone says, suicide takes guts. It's for heroes and martyrs, truly vainglorious men. Archie was none of these. He was a man whose significance in the Greater Scheme of Things could be figured along familiar ratios:
Pebble : Beach
Raindrop : Ocean
Needle : Haystack #Quote by Zadie Smith
Suicide quotes by Walter Kasper
#63. Suicide attacks are the actions of losers who have nothing left to lose. In this case, Islam serves as a mask, a cover for desperation and nihilism, but not for religion. #Quote by Walter Kasper
Suicide quotes by Richard Dawkins
#64. We see only moths wheeling into our candle, and we ask the wrong question: Why are all these moths committing suicide? Instead, we should ask why they have nervous systems that steer by maintaining a fixed angle to light rays, a tactic that we notice only where it goes wrong. When the question is rephrased, the mystery evaporates. It never was right to call it suicide. It is a misfiring by-product of a normally useful compass. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Suicide quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#65. Darkness is now the home that I crave. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Suicide quotes by Oswald Spengler
#66. This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us ... to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves, to act in such a way that some part of us lives on. This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us ... to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves, to act in such a way that some part of us lives on. #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Suicide quotes by George Horace Lorimer
#67. Because a fellow has failed once or twice or a dozen times, you don't want to set him down as a failure till he's dead or loses his courage. #Quote by George Horace Lorimer
Suicide quotes by Sarah Kane
#68. - I won't be able to think. I won't be able to work.
- Nothing will interfere with your work like suicide.
(Silence)
- I dreamt that I went to the doctor's and she gave me eight minutes to live. I'd been sitting in the fucking waiting room for half an hour.
(A long silence)
- Okay, let's do it, let's do the drugs, let's do the chemical lobotomy, let's shut down the higher functions of my brain and perhaps I'll be a bit more fucking capable of living.
Let's do it. #Quote by Sarah Kane
Suicide quotes by Pamela Freeman
#69. There were worse things than death.
There would be a leap and a moment suspended, then a long hopeless curve to the rocks and river below. They would fall like leaves between clouds of swifts and then be washed away by the thundering rapids. Bramble clung to that thought. If their bodies washed away then there could be no identification, no danger of reprisals on her family.
She hung on tighter.
The roan's hindquarters bunched under her and they were in the air. It was like she had imagined: the leap, and then the moment suspended in air that seemed to last forever.
Below her the swifts boiled up through the river mist, swerving and swooping, while she and the roan seemed to stay frozen above them. Bramble felt, like a rush of air, the presence of the gods surround her. The shock made her lose her balance and begin to slide sideways.
She felt herself falling.
With an impossible flick of both legs, the roan shrugged her back onto his shoulders. Then the long curve downward and she braced herself to see the cliffs rushing past as they fell.
Time to die.
Instead she felt a thumping jolt that flung her from the roan's back and tossed her among the rocks at the cliff's edge on the other side.
On the other side.
Her sight cleared, although the light still seemed dim. Her hearing came back a little. On the other side of the abyss a jumble of men and hounds were milling, shouting, astonished and very angry.
"You can't do that! #Quote by Pamela Freeman
Suicide quotes by Tiffany King
#70. All the whispering, glaring, pointing and judging makes them no better than whoever or whatever it is they're gossiping about. #Quote by Tiffany King
Suicide quotes by Bruce Sterling
#71. We might be on the brink of an apocalypse if, instead of poor people with suicide bombs killing middle class guys, middle-class people with suicide bombs started killing rich guys. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Suicide quotes by John Berendt
#72. By morning she was dead. She had not died of starvation or committed suicide by any conventional means. She had simply willed herself to die, and being a strong-willed woman, she had succeeded. She had missed dying on her birthday by two days. #Quote by John Berendt
Suicide quotes by Carlos
#73. Thoughts of suicide exist, simply because the individual is suffering from a lack of emotional and physical nourishment, hence the term, "starving for attention". The person who is suicidal feels that, no matter what they do, it is never good enough for society, and hence, they are never satisfied. #Quote by Carlos
Suicide quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#74. No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun - for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax - This won't hurt #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Suicide quotes by Eric
#75. If I went back in time and killed myself, would it be murder or suicide???? #Quote by Eric
Suicide quotes by Harold B. Lee
#76. The one who confidently looks forward to an eternal reward for his efforts in mortality is constantly sustained through his deepest trials. When he is disappointed in love, he does not commit suicide. When loved ones die, he doesn't despair; when he loses a coveted contest, he doesn't falter; when war and destruction dissipate his future, he doesn't sink into a depression. He lives above his world and never loses sight of the goal of his salvation. #Quote by Harold B. Lee
Suicide quotes by Richard Dawkins
#77. Religion's power to console doesn't make it true. Even if we make a huge concession; even if it were conclusively demonstrated that belief in God's existence is completely essential to human psychological and emotional well-being; even if all atheists were despairing neurotics driven to suicide by relentless cosmic angst - none of this would contribute the tiniest jot or tittle of evidence that religious belief is true. It #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Suicide quotes by Paulo Coelho
#78. And thank you for giving meaning to my life. I came into this world in order to go through everything I've gone through: attempted suicide, ruining my heart, meeting you, coming up to this castle, letting you engrave my face on your soul. That is the only reason I came into the world, to make you go back to the path you strayed from. Don't make me feel my life has been in vain. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Suicide quotes by Christopher Soto
#79. Rory said he loved me but wouldn't hold my hand in public. & he wanted so badly to end the pain, but it never went away, it stayed with the people that loved him. #Quote by Christopher Soto
Suicide quotes by Wesley Stace
#80. They're not doing much for themselves. I'm sure they'd rather slip away, relax their fingers and float, but they can't. They're not allowed. Effort is so painful; our knuckles are white, yet we keep clinging. The alternative is suicide- and we are too fearful for that. #Quote by Wesley Stace
Suicide quotes by Howard Zinn
#81. In two years, through murder, mutilation, or suicide, half of the 250,000 Indians on Haiti were dead. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Suicide quotes by Ofeibea Quist-Arcton
#82. There's no doubt that Boko Haram has been driven from many of its strongholds in northeastern Nigeria. Now, President Muhammadu Buhari says technically, we have won the war. Those in the know say but technically, the army is still losing the battle because Boko Haram has changed tactics. Instead of now holding territory as it used to and calling this territory its own, now it is resorting to guerrilla tactics, hit-and-run raids and especially suicide bombings. #Quote by Ofeibea Quist-Arcton
Suicide quotes by Hal Holbrook
#83. I have a suicide impulse. #Quote by Hal Holbrook
Suicide quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#84. The way of acquiescence leads to moral and spiritual suicide. The way of violence leads to bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers. But, the way of nonviolence leads to redemption and the creation of the beloved community. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Suicide quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#85. I knew a young lady of the last "romantic" generation who after some years of an enigmatic passion for a gentleman, whom she might quite easily have married at any moment, invented insuperable obstacles to their union, and ended by throwing herself one stormy night into a rather deep and rapid river from a high bank, almost a precipice, and so perished, entirely to satisfy her own caprice, and to be like Shakespeare's Ophelia. Indeed, if this precipice, a chosen and favourite spot of hers, had been less picturesque, if there had been a prosaic flat bank in its place, most likely the suicide would never have taken place. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Suicide quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#86. If a doctor assists you in your suicide, it is called manslaughter, while if a tobacco company does, it is called commerce. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Suicide quotes by Alex Gaskarth
#87. I want you to fucking pinky promise me you won't do it. No fan of mine will kill themselves. Don't do it, for me. I love you. #Quote by Alex Gaskarth
Suicide quotes by Elizabeth Chandler
#88. Will:"You know, when two people narrowly escape falling to their deaths, they usually have something to talk about, Even if they hadn't met before that moment, they usually have something to sayto each other afterward. But you haven't said anything to me. I've been tryingto give you some time. I've been trying to give you some space. All I want is-"
Ivy:"Thank you. Thank you for risking your life. Thank you for saving me."
"That's not what I wanted! Gratitude is the last thing I-"
"Well, let me tell you what I want, Honesty."
"When haven't I been honest? When?"
"I found your note, Will. I know you blackmailed Gregory. I didn't tell the police yet, but I will."
"So tell them, go ahead! It's old news to them, but if you've got the note, it's one more piece for the police files. I just don't get- Wait a minute. Do you think- You couldn't really think I did that to make money, could you?"
"That's usually why people blackmail."
"You think I'd betray you like that? Ivy I set up that blackmail--I got the Celentanos to help me out, and i videotaped it-so that i had something to take to the police." "Back in August when you were in the hospital, Gregory called me and told me you had tried to commit suicide. I couldn't believe it. I knew how much you missed Tristan, but I knew you were a fighter, too. I went to the train station that morning to look around and try to figure out what had gone through your head. As i was leaving I found the jacket #Quote by Elizabeth Chandler

#89. Suicide is a very permanent solution to what is usually a temporary problem. #Quote by Richard Winters
Suicide quotes by Brian Crozier
#90. A society that does not defend itself is doomed. A system that remains passive in the face of attack deserves to go under. Those unwilling to defend freedom will become unfree. To stand idly by is to commit suicide. #Quote by Brian Crozier
Suicide quotes by Johnny Rich
#91. He thought of hanging himself, to pass the time. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Suicide quotes by Emily X.R. Pan
#92. What makes a person - one who is so deeply loved - decide to do such a thing? #Quote by Emily X.R. Pan
Suicide quotes by Sergei Yesenin
#93. Goodbye, my friend, goodbye
My love, you are in my heart.
It was preordained we should part
And be reunited by and by.
Goodbye: no handshake to endure.
Let's have no sadness - furrowed brow.
There's nothing new in dying now
Though living is no newer. #Quote by Sergei Yesenin
Suicide quotes by Allyse Near
#94. Once upon a time, Isola Wilde was watching late-night television with her eldest brother, Alejandro, when Channel 12 broadcast a live suicide. #Quote by Allyse Near
Suicide quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#95. That is what chills your spine when you read an account of a suicide: not the frail corpse hanging from the window bars but what happened inside that heart immediately before. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir

Suicide quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#98. You would think that a man who's spent as much time in the theater as I have would know when the proper time came for the hero to die-if he was to be a hero. I missed my cue for the great suicide scene #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut

Suicide quotes by Tupac Shakur
#100. I know what good morals are,
but you're supposed to disregard good morals when you're living in a crazy, bad world. If you're in hell, how can you live like an angel? You're surrounded by devils,trying to be an angel? That's like suicide. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Suicide quotes by Nick Hornby
#101. I've committed to nothing ... and that's just suicide ... by tiny, tiny increments. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Suicide quotes by Bruce Feiler
#102. A recent wave of research shows that children who eat dinner with their families are less likely to drink, smoke, do drugs, get pregnant, commit suicide, and develop eating disorders. Additional research found that children who enjoy family meals have larger vocabularies, better manners, healthier diets, and higher self-esteem. #Quote by Bruce Feiler
Suicide quotes by Martin Page
#103. It's easier to get your high school diploma, become a police inspector, or get your master's degree in literature than to commit suicide. The success rate is less than eight percent. #Quote by Martin Page
Suicide quotes by Kate Quinn

Suicide quotes by Brendan Cowell
#106. Because it was all I wanted to fucking know. It was all I wanted to know in this fucking world: where did the beautiful boys go? Where did the beautiful boys go? Where the hell did they go? #Quote by Brendan Cowell
Suicide quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#107. Even then, if the cliff, chosen and cherished from long ago, had not been so picturesque, if it had been merely a flat, prosaic bank, the suicide might not have taken place at all. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Suicide quotes by James Buchan
#108. For all their current prestige, Osama bin Laden and the suicide bombers are still regarded in all but the most desperate districts of Gaza or Peshawar as romantics with little chance of more than symbolic victories, however bloody and brutal. That gives both the Middle East and the West a small and distant hope of security. #Quote by James Buchan
Suicide quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#109. Women kill themselves because they hope to gain something," said Kadife. "Men kill themselves because they've lost hope of gaining anything. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Suicide quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#110. Patients who are being kept alive by technology and want to end their lives already have a recognized constitutional right to stop any and all medical interventions, from respirators to antibiotics. They do not need physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia. #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
Suicide quotes by Dan Wells
#111. And all I can think about is that it's not over and I'm tired and I'm ready to go but I'm still here. And I have to do it again and again and again." He leaned back in his chair.
"You think about that before you tell me I've got it easy."
I stayed silent a while before speaking. "So why don't you end it?"
"Suicide?"
"If your life is such a hell," I asked, "why bother? Why go through it again and again and all those times?"
"Because of..." He stopped and looked at the ceiling. After a moment he shrugged.
"Because of children," he said, "because of smiles and sunshine and ice cream."
"You've got to be kidding."
"You don't like ice cream?" Elijah shook his head, "It's the best. Imagine how excited I was when someone finally invented it. "
"Sunshine and smiles don't make all that other stuff go away." I said, "This isn't a fairy land."
"No," he said. "It's the real world. And the real world is the most amazing thing any of us will ever experience. Have you ever climbed a mountain? Walked through a garden? Played with a child? This isn't exactly a revelation John. People have been praising the simple pleasures since even before I was born, and that's a very long time."
"You don't do any of those things."
"But I have my memories," Said Elijah. "And I have even simpler things. Music. Food. Everybody likes bacon."
"I'm a vegetarian."
"Asparagus then," said Elijah, "roasted in pan. A little olive oil and a little #Quote by Dan Wells
Suicide quotes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
#112. It is always a foolish thing to contemplate suicide; for no matter how dark the future may appear today, tomorrow may hold for us that which will alter our whole life in an instant, revealing to us nothing but sunshine and happiness. So, for my part, I shall always wait for tomorrow. #Quote by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Suicide quotes by Amanda Hocking
#113. She's the princess. She commanded and I obeyed!"-Loki
"You don't obey a suicide mission!"-Finn #Quote by Amanda Hocking
Suicide quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#114. Reasoning led him into doubt and kept him from seeing what he should and should not do. Yet when he did not think, but lived, he constantly felt in his soul the presence of an infallible judge who decided which of two possible actions was better and which was worse; and whenever he did not act as he should, he felt it at once.
So he lived, not knowing and not seeing any possibility of knowing what he was and why he was living in the world, tormented by this ignorance to such a degree that he feared suicide, and at the same time firmly laying down his own particular, definite path in life. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Suicide quotes by Antonin Artaud
#115. I, myself, spent 9 years in an insane asylum and never had any suicidal tendencies, but I know that every conversation I had with a psychiatrist during the morning visit made me long to hang myself because I was aware that I could not slit his throat. #Quote by Antonin Artaud
Suicide quotes by Rick Riordan
#116. Meg!' I said. 'I told you not to kill it! You'll get cursed!'
'I didn't kill it. It committed suicide against that wall. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Suicide quotes by Stephen Chbosky
#117. Bridget who is crazy said that sometimes she thought about suicide when commercials come on during TV. She was sincere and this puzzled the guidance counselors. #Quote by Stephen Chbosky
Suicide quotes by Elton John
#118. What a scandal, if I die. Yeah, I'm gonna kill myself, get a little headline news. #Quote by Elton John
Suicide quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#119. It didn't matter in the end how old they had been, or that they were girls, but only that we had loved them, and that they hadn't heard us calling, still do not hear us, up here in the tree house, with our thinning hair and soft bellies, calling them out of those rooms where they went to be alone for all time, alone in suicide, which is deeper than death, and where we will never find the pieces to put them back together. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Suicide quotes by Plato
#120. And what shall he suffer who slays him who of all men, as they say, is his own best friend? I mean the suicide, who deprives himself by violence of his appointed share of life. Not because the law of the state requires him. Nor yet under the compulsion of some painful and inevitable misfortune which has come upon him. Nor because he has had to suffer from irremediable and intolerable shame, but who from sloth or want of manliness imposes upon himself an unjust penalty. #Quote by Plato
Suicide quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#121. Do not despair of life. Think of the fox, prowling in a winter night to satisfy his hunger. His race survives; I do not believe any of them ever committed suicide. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Suicide quotes by Rajneesh
#122. Nothing is secure. That is my message. Nothing can be secure, because a secure life will be worse than death. Nothing is certain. Life is full of uncertainties, full of surprises - that is its beauty! You can never come to a moment when you can say, "Now I am certain." When you say you are certain, you simply declare your death, you have committed suicide. #Quote by Rajneesh
Suicide quotes by Ken Grimwood
#123. Someone - Plato, I think - once said, 'The unexamined life is not worth living.' "
"True. But a life too closely scrutinized will lead to madness, if not suicide. #Quote by Ken Grimwood
Suicide quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#124. When one does away with oneself one does the most estimable thing possible: one thereby almost deserves to live. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Suicide quotes by Sharon E. Rainey
#125. Most teenage suicide attempts are cries for help; the teens survive, succeeding in bringing them the wanted attention. Mine was not a cry for help. I wanted to end my life and my misery. #Quote by Sharon E. Rainey
Suicide quotes by Judd Nelson
#126. I just couldn't go back to Suddenly Susan after David Strickland's suicide. I didn't see how we could make the show light and funny any more. #Quote by Judd Nelson
Suicide quotes by Jay Asher
#127. When you hold people up for ridicule, you have to take responsibility when other people act on it. #Quote by Jay Asher
Suicide quotes by Michael Anthony
#128. I couldn't see killing myself if I had a book that was only half-read: Fountainhead, Catcher in the Rye, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, One Hundred Years of Solitude? No. I figured that those who killed themselves first had to finish whatever book they were reading...if it were any good, that is. Of course, there's always the occasional book that makes you want to throw yourself off a bridge just for having wasted your time reading it. But I usually finished those ones, too. #Quote by Michael Anthony
Suicide quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#129. We knew that Cecilia had killed herself because she was a misfit, because the beyond called to her, and we knew that her sisters, once abandoned, felt her calling from that place, too. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Suicide quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#130. My father gave me a ruined boy to compensate for the fact that he does not love me.
The boy is fragile, broken - broke himself - broke everything.
I asked him why he did it. He said because the world was unlivable. He said it was unlovable, but I think he meant himself. I think he meant that loneliness is sometimes painful.
I curl against him, tuck my head beneath his chin and listen to his heart. It says stay and wait. It says regret. He knows what it is to want love, a love so fierce you grow roots. I hear his heart say please.
He went looking for angels and found me instead, girl of the sorrows, sad but not sorry. I waited for a sign, a star to fall. He reached for a knife and drew branches. #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff
Suicide quotes by J.D. Beresford
#131. Surely we should all perish through sheer inanity, or die desperately by suicide if no mystery remained in the world. #Quote by J.D. Beresford
Suicide quotes by Neal Stephenson
#132. Their openness would probably be career suicide in the atmosphere of Byzantine court-eunuch intrigue that is public life in the United States today. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Suicide quotes by Marsha Norman
#133. Mama, I know you used to ride the bus. Riding the bus and it's hot and bumpy and crowded and too noisy and more than anything in the world you want to get off and the only reason in the world you don't get off is it's still fifty blocks from where you're going? Well, I can get off right now if I want to, because even if I ride fifty more years and get off then, it's the same place when I step down to it. Whenever I feel like it, I can get off. As soon as I've had enough, it's my stop. I've had enough. #Quote by Marsha Norman
Suicide quotes by Fuminori Nakamura
#134. Every year far more people kill themselves in Japan than die through war or terrorism in Iraq. We go on and on about other countries, but I think Japanese society is pretty cruel too. #Quote by Fuminori Nakamura
Suicide quotes by Julie Anne Peters
#135. I want to tell them, Chip, Kim, there is no way to suicide-proof a person. #Quote by Julie Anne Peters
Suicide quotes by Carolyn Parkhurst
#136. Because for most of us, suicide is a moment we'll never choose. It's only for people like Lexy, who know they might choose eventually, who believe they have a choice to make. #Quote by Carolyn Parkhurst
Suicide quotes by Frigyes Karinthy
#137. My head ached. I was thinking of the pain, and wondering how it was possible for physical agony to be so intense. I had never imagined that such a torture could be endured. Yet here was I, both conscious and able to think clearly. And not only to think, but to observe the process and make calculations about it. The steel circle round my skull was closing in with faint cracking noises. How much farther could it shrink? I counted the cracking sounds. Since I took the triple dose of pain-killer, there had been two more. …I took out my watch and laid it on the table.

"Give me morphia," I said in a calm, hostile, icy tone.

"You mustn't take morphia! You know perfectly well. The very idea! And what are you doing with that watch?"

"You will give me morphia within three minutes."

They looked me uneasily up and down. No one moved. Three minutes went by. Then ten more. I slipped the watch calmly into my pocket and rose unsteadily to my feet.

"Then take me to the Fiakker Bar. They say it's a good show, and to-night I want to enjoy myself."

The others jumped up with a feeling of relief.

I never confessed the secret to anyone, either then or afterwards. I had made up my mind at the end of those three minutes - for the first and last time in my life - that if my headache had not stopped within the next ten I should throw myself under the nearest tram.

It never came out whether I should have kept to #Quote by Frigyes Karinthy
Suicide quotes by Kevin Mitnick
#138. I think a cyber-terrorism attack is overblown, though the threat exists. I think al Qaeda and other groups are more interested in symbolic terrorism, like what they did to the World Trade Center - suicide bombers or something that really has an effect and is meaningful to people. #Quote by Kevin Mitnick
Suicide quotes by Addison Moore
#139. Drake is my own personal suicide, and the sooner I except that, the sooner I can come to terms with my loner status at the school library #Quote by Addison Moore
Suicide quotes by James Jones
#140. Every man has a right to kill himself. #Quote by James Jones
Suicide quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#141. From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia ... could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Suicide quotes by Seneca.
#142. What need is there to weep over parts of life? The whole of it calls for tears. #Quote by Seneca.
Suicide quotes by Warren Farrell
#143. Women attempt suicide more often because they want to become the priority of those they love rather than always prioritizing them. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Suicide quotes by Angus Buchan
#144. I had a choice: I could believe the lies of the devil, in which case I was on my way to suicide, or I could believe in the promises of God, and be taken through my time of trial. #Quote by Angus Buchan
Suicide quotes by William Shatner
#145. I'm so not ready to die. It petrifies me. I go alone. I go to a place I don't know. It might be painful. It might be the end. My thought is that it is the end. I become nameless, and I spent a lifetime being known. #Quote by William Shatner
Suicide quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#146. She must really love you to distraction."
"It's rather a funny sensation, you know," he answered, wrinkling a perplexed forehead. "I haven't the smallest doubt that if I really left her, definitely, she would commit suicide. Not with any ill-feeling towards me, but quite naturally, because she was unwilling to live without me. It is a curious feeling it gives one to know that. It can't help meaning something to you. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Suicide quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#147. There is no lonelier man than a writer when he's writing, except the suicide. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Suicide quotes by David
#148. How do we forgive ourselves for all the things we did not become? #Quote by David "Doc" Luben
Suicide quotes by Neal Stephenson
#149. Just like many Popish Plotters before them, these had promptly begun to "commit suicide" in the Tower. One had even managed the heroic feat of cutting his own throat all the way to the vertebrae! #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Suicide quotes by Scott Adams
#150. You already barely exist. Disappearing entirely won't be that much of a change. #Quote by Scott Adams
Suicide quotes by Joseph Heller
#151. The enemy is anybody who's going to get you killed, no matter which side he is on. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Suicide quotes by Toni Morrison
#152. What was taken by outsiders to be slackness, slovenliness or even generosity was in fact a full recognition of the legitimacy of forces other than good ones. They did not believe doctors could heal
for them, none ever had done so. They did not believe death was accidental
life might be, but death was deliberate. They did not believe Nature was ever askew
only inconvenient. Plague and drought were as 'natural' as springtime. If milk could curdle, God knows robins could fall. The purpose of evil was to survive it and they determined (without ever knowing they had made up their minds to do it) to survive floods, white people, tuberculosis, famine and ignorance. They knew anger well but not despair, and they didn't stone sinners for the same reason they didn't commit suicide
it was beneath them. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Suicide quotes by Yukio Mishima
#153. When I arrived at the house in the suburbs that night I seriously contemplated suicide for the first time in my life. But as I thought about it, the idea became exceedingly tiresome, and I finally decided it would be a ludicrous business. I had an inherent dislike of admitting defeat. Moreover, I told myself, there's no need for me to take such decisive action myself, not when I'm surrounded by such a bountiful harvest of death - death in an air raid, death at one's post of duty, death in the military service, death on the battlefield, death from being run over, death from disease - surely my name has already been entered in the list for one of these: a criminal who has been sentenced to death does not commit suicide. No - no matter how I considered, the season was not auspicious for suicide. Instead I was waiting for something to do me the favor of killing me. And this, in the final analysis, is the same as to say that I was waiting for something to do me the favor of keeping me alive. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Suicide quotes by Juan Filloy
#154. His leap was exact, mathematical. The initial arc - head tucked between taut arms that spread out gradually like wings - was as graceful as a swan dive. #Quote by Juan Filloy
Suicide quotes by Herman Melville
#155. What man who carries a heavenly soul in him, has not groaned to perceive, that unless he committed a sort of suicide as to the practical things of this world, he never can hope to regulate his earthly conduct by that same heavenly soul? #Quote by Herman Melville
Suicide quotes by Diana Palmer
#156. What happened to you?" she asked.
"Bullets hurt," he said. "It missed the artificial arm by two inches, damn the marksman. I hate people who can't shoot straight."
"How many this time?" she asked with a smile.
"Just one," he said. "In the shoulder. It's much better now." He shook his head. "I'm getting too old for this. I've got so many broken bones that I can't move fast enough anymore."
She smiled wider. "Someday you'll find a woman who's worth giving up the danger for." The smile faded. "You're like Tate. He loves his work. He probably lives on adrenaline. Funny. I never understood that before. Now suddenly everything is clear. I was living on pipe dreams."
He sighed. "It was more than his heritage that kept him away from you," he said. "I knew, but I couldn't explain it to you. Work like ours demands sacrifice. Any loved one can become a hostage. Any relationship can take away the edge we need when we're under fire. A man with something to lose isn't a man to send on a potential suicide mission. Take your mind off the objective for one minute, and you're dead. #Quote by Diana Palmer
Suicide quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#157. I wanted to kill the me underneath. That fact haunted my days and nights. When you realize you hate yourself so much, when you realize that you cannot stand who you are, and this deep spite has been the motivation behind your behavior for many years, your brain can't quite deal with it. It will try very hard to avoid that realization; it will try, in a last-ditch effort to keep your remaining parts alive, to remake the rest of you. This is, I believe, different from the suicidal wish of those who are in so much pain that death feels like relief, different from the suicide I would later attempt, trying to escape that pain. This is a wish to murder yourself; the connotation of kill is too mild. This is a belief that you deserve slow torture, violent death. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Suicide quotes by Inio Asano
#158. Have you ever, for even a second, thought about how hard it is for people like me just to stay alive? #Quote by Inio Asano
Suicide quotes by Cecily White
#159. When I said I absolve you, that wasn't meant as a suicide suggestion. For the moment, we're still bonded."

Suicide quotes by Colleen Thompson
#160. ME's bound to rule your sister's death a suicide, Ms. Miller. I know how hard it is to accept - " Anger roaring in her ears, Lauren slapped her palms hard against the cushions as she pushed herself to her feet. "You're with the FBI, right? So why are you even here, if all you're going to do is feed me the cops' regurgitated bullshit?" "I was called #Quote by Colleen Thompson
Suicide quotes by Immanuel Kant
#161. A man reduced to despair by a series of misfortunes feels wearied of life, but is still so far in possession of his reason that he can ask himself whether it would not be contrary to his duty to himself to take his own life. Now he inquires whether the maxim of his action could become a universal law of nature. His maxim is: From self-love I adopt it as a principle to shorten my life when its longer duration is likely to bring more evil than satisfaction. It is asked then simply whether this principle founded on self-love can become a universal law of nature. Now we see at once that a system of nature of which it should be a law to destroy life by means of the very feeling whose special nature it is to impel to the improvement of life would contradict itself, and therefore could not exist as a system of nature; hence that maxim cannot possibly exist as a universal law of nature, and consequently would be wholly inconsistent with the supreme principle of all duty. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Suicide quotes by Nancy A. Collins
#162. She knew that the only love her demon was capable of was self-destructive, cruel, vampiric, parasitic, and all the other words her best friends had used to describe Jerry, Alec, Christian, Matt, and the others whose names, faces, and genitalia had now blurred together in her memories. They were men incapable of love yet able to inspire suicide threats. #Quote by Nancy A. Collins
Suicide quotes by Kathleen Rooney
#163. I wasn't glad that I hadn't died. And I wasn't sad that I hadn't. I wasn't anything. #Quote by Kathleen Rooney
Suicide quotes by Trevor Treharne
#164. The entire Jesus concept, that human sacrifice should be the substratum of a moral religion of love, strikes me as incongruous. God condemned us and Jesus saved us, and they are actually the same being? Christianity is the idea that you are so abhorrent that God had to kill himself. He had to embody the human form and send himself on a bizarre suicide mission just to revoke the disgustingness of the humans he created. I balk at suggestions that these ideas dictate to the concepts of morality and love. #Quote by Trevor Treharne
Suicide quotes by Kid Rock
#165. A lot of people told me that I'm committing musical suicide with my sound. #Quote by Kid Rock
Suicide quotes by Salman Rushdie
#166. The suicide bomber's imagination leads him to believe in a brilliant act of heroism, when in fact he is simply blowing himself up pointlessly and taking other people's lives. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Suicide quotes by Yogi Berra
#167. It is a disturbing conundrum that true free will cannot exist without the possibility of suicide. Then again, it ain't over 'til it's over! #Quote by Yogi Berra
Suicide quotes by Oscar Wilde
#168. A simile committing suicide is always a depressing spectacle. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Suicide quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#169. There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Suicide quotes by Richard Bach
#170. Anyone desperate enough for suicide ... should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try. #Quote by Richard Bach
Suicide quotes by Anatole France
#171. God forbids suicide, and is unwilling that his creatures should destroy themselves. #Quote by Anatole France
Suicide quotes by James Allen
#172. There is no room for a complainer in a universe of law, and worry is soul-suicide. By your very attitude of mind you are strengthening the chains which bind you, and are drawing about you the darkness by which you are enveloped, Alter your outlook upon life, and your outward life will alter. #Quote by James Allen
Suicide quotes by Sylvia Plath
#173. The journey over the bridge had unnerved me. The river water passed me by like an untouched drink. I suspected that even if my mother and brother had not been there I would have made no move to jump. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Suicide quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#174. We need to do what I call visionary organizing. Recognize that in every crisis, people do not respond like a school of fish. Some people become immobilized. Some people become very angry, some commit suicide, and other people begin to find solutions. And visionary organizers look at those people, recognize them and encourage them, and they become leaders of the future. #Quote by Grace Lee Boggs
Suicide quotes by Charles Barkley
#175. Any professional league that goes on strike right now - that's just suicide. #Quote by Charles Barkley
Suicide quotes by Octavia Butler
#176. Religion kept some of my relatives alive, because it was all they had. If they hadn't had some hope of heaven, some companionship in Jesus, they probably would have committed suicide, their lives were so hellish. #Quote by Octavia Butler
Suicide quotes by John Ehle
#177. What was his place? he wondered. Where was his world? He had sometimes stood on the riverbank and told himself: Deep down in the cold water is your world; a rock lashed to your feet is your clothing for that world. To enter it you need only to climb to the place above the rapids, where the pool is, where it is always calm, so it must be deep, and there bury yourself and leave a world that is not your own and find a garden, long fields already cleared and cribs already filled, a new place in which a weakness in a man is a matter for a word or chide, not a break through which the terrors of the world flow in. #Quote by John Ehle
Suicide quotes by Nick Vujicic
#178. When I was 8 years old, I became depressed. I kept asking why I was born this way [without arms and legs]. I also worried about my future. At the age of 10, I tried to commit suicide because I felt like giving up. But when I imagined my loving parents crying at my grave, I decided to stay. #Quote by Nick Vujicic
Suicide quotes by David Benatar
#179. Although they will miss his presence if he dies, his condition is too burdensome to require his continued presence. In such circumstances, what is selfish is the insistence that the prospective suicide remain alive, not that he seek his own demise. The argument about selfishness can backfire in another way. Just as it is sometimes the case that those who kill themselves have accorded insufficient weight to the interests of others, so it is sometimes the case that those who do not kill themselves make this error. Consistent with what I have already said, I do not think that the interests of others are decisive. Nevertheless, there are situations in which a person's interest in continued life is negligible, because he will die soon anyway, and the quality of his life is appalling. If seeing out his days, rather than taking his own life earlier, would spell financial ruin for his family (because of the costs of his medical care), then it may well be unduly selfish not to take one's own life. #Quote by David Benatar
Suicide quotes by Aimee Herman
#180. I never want to be known. I'd rather be alone than have everyone talk about me and bother about my life. That's why I want to be an astronaut. I just want to travel into space and stay there. Be somewhere where no one else goes. #Quote by Aimee Herman
Suicide quotes by George Weinberg
#181. We have many cases of men committing suicide rather than face their own individuality. I know of no case of a woman who committed suicide because she was gay. #Quote by George Weinberg
Suicide quotes by Kayla Krantz
#182. I want to feel the rush of death, the high of utter nothingness, the fragility of my own mortality. Let it slip through my fingers like sand and when it's gone for good, I'll be none the wiser. #Quote by Kayla Krantz
Suicide quotes by Milan Kundera
#183. Why does Anna Karenina kill herself? the answer seems clear enough: for years people in her world have turned away from her; she is suffering at the separation from her son, Seryozha; even if Vronsky still loves her, she fears for that love; she is exhausted with it, overexcited, unwholesomely (and unjustly) jealous; she feels trapped. Yes, all that is clear; but is a trapped person necessarily doomed to suicide? So many people adapt to living in a trap! Even if we understand the depth of her sorrow, Anna's suicide remains an enigma. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Suicide quotes by Caitlin Doughty
#184. In spite of my fear of living, I chose not to die. #Quote by Caitlin Doughty
Suicide quotes by Orson Scott Card
#185. Life is a suicide course, Miro. Check it out- basic philosophy course. You spend your life running out of fuel and when you're finally out, you croak. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Suicide quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#186. Buddha taught, "Breathing in, I recognize my feeling. Breathing out, I calm my feeling." If you practice this, not only will your feeling be calmed down but the energy of mindfulness will also help you see into the nature and roots of your anger. Mindfulness helps you be concentrated and look deeply. This is true meditation. The insight will come after some time of practice. You will see the truth about yourself and the truth about the person who you thought to be the cause of your suffering. This insight will release you from your anger and transform the roots of anger in you. The transformation in you will also help transform the other person. Mindful speaking can bring real happiness, and unmindful speech can kill. When someone tells us something that makes us happy, that is a wonderful gift. But sometimes someone says something to us that is so cruel and distressing that we feel like committing suicide. We lose our joie de vivre. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Suicide quotes by Mark Twain
#187. I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him. #Quote by Mark Twain
Suicide quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#188. We did not make ourselves, nor did we fashion a world that could not work without pain, and great pain at that, with a little pleasure, very little, to string us along--a world where all organisms are inexorably pushed by pain throughout their lives to do that which will improve their chances to survive and create more of themselves. Left unchecked, this process will last as long as a single cell remains palpitating in this cesspool of the solar system, this toilet of the galaxy. So why not lend a hand in nature's suicide? For want of a deity that could be held to account for a world in which there is terrible pain, let nature take the blame for our troubles. We did not create an environment uncongenial to our species, nature did. One would think that nature was trying to kill us off, or get us to suicide ourselves once the blunder of consciousness came upon us. What was nature thinking? We tried to anthropomorphize it, to romanticize it, to let it into our hearts. But nature kept its distance, leaving us to our own devices. So be it. Survival is a two-way street. Once we settle ourselves off-world, we can blow up this planet from outer space. It's the only way to be sure its stench will not follow us. Let it save itself if it can--the condemned are known for the acrobatics they will execute to wriggle out of their sentences. But if it cannot destroy what it has made, and what could possibly unmake it, then may it perish along with every other living thing it has introduced t #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Suicide quotes by Bill Maher
#189. Forget bringing the troops home from Iraq. We need to get the troops home from World War II. Can anybody tell me why, in 2009, we still have more than sixty thousand troops in Germany and thirty thousand in Japan? At some point, these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves. Our soldiers have been in Germany so long they now wear shorts with black socks. You know that crazy soldier hiding in the cave on Iwo Jima who doesn't know the war is over? That's us.

Bush and Cheney used to love to keep Americans all sphinctered-up on the notion that terrorists might follow us home. But actually, we're the people who go to your home and then never leave. Here's the facts: The Republic of America has more than five hundred thousand military personnel deployed on more than seven hundred bases, with troops in one hundred fifty countries - we're like McDonald's with tanks - including thirty-seven European countries - because you never know when Portugal might invade Euro Disney. And this doesn't even count our secret torture prisons, which are all over the place, but you never really see them until someone brings you there - kinda like IHOP.

Of course, Americans would never stand for this in reverse - we can barely stand letting Mexicans in to do the landscaping. Can you imagine if there were twenty thousand armed Guatemalans on a base in San Ber-nardino right now? Lou Dobbs would become a suicide bomber.

And why? How did this country get stuck #Quote by Bill Maher
Suicide quotes by Vanilla Ice
#190. It wasn't until '94 when I tried to commit suicide that I realized that it wasn't about the money. #Quote by Vanilla Ice
Suicide quotes by Judy Collins
#191. I have friends who've tried suicide many times and haven't succeeded. I myself made an attempt, so I had a connection with that sort of group of people who have tried suicide at one time in their lives. #Quote by Judy Collins
Suicide quotes by Mandy Patinkin
#192. People who go into the arts are often hurt people. Many are manic-depressive. Some have tried suicide and some have succeeded. It's just part of the game. We are people who are oversensitive. That's why we're in this business, because of our need to communicate. #Quote by Mandy Patinkin
Suicide quotes by George Eliot
#193. Love gives insight, Maggie, and insight often gives foreboding. Listen to me, let me supply you with books; do let me see you sometimes, be your brother and teacher, as you said at Lorton. It is less wrong that you should see me than that you should be committing this long suicide. #Quote by George Eliot
Suicide quotes by Shon Mehta
#194. I lived my whole life following others' wishes. Let me follow my own wish in my death. #Quote by Shon Mehta
Suicide quotes by J.D. Salinger
#195. What I really felt like, though, was committing suicide. I felt like jumping out the window. I probably would've done it, too, if I'd been sure somebody'd cover me up as soon as I landed. I didn't want a bunch of stupid rubbernecks looking at me when I was all gory. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Suicide quotes by William Styron
#196. The pain of severe depression is quite unimaginable to those who have not suffered it, and it kills in many instances because its anguish can no longer be borne. The prevention of many suicides will continue to be hindered until there is a general awareness of the nature of this pain. #Quote by William Styron
Suicide quotes by Jennifer Michael Hecht
#197. We are humanity, Kant says. Humanity needs us because we are it. Kant believes in duty and considers remaining alive a primary human duty. For him one is not permitted to "renounce his personality," and while he states living as a duty, it also conveys a kind of freedom: we are not burdened with the obligation of judging whether our personality is worth maintaining, whether our life is worth living. Because living it is a duty, we are performing a good moral act just by persevering. #Quote by Jennifer Michael Hecht
Suicide quotes by Jonathan Ames
#198. It's very hard not to commit cancer suicide in America. #Quote by Jonathan Ames

#199. And pray where in earth or heaven are there prudent marriages? Might as well talk about prudent suicides. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Suicide quotes by Cassandra Clare
#200. So, what are you?"
"What I am is someone who doesn't want you to jump out of the window. The rest are details. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
