The gatherd storme is rype; the bigge drops falle;The forswat meadowes smethe, and drenche the raine;The comyng ghastness do the cattle pall,And the full flockes are drivynge ore the plaine;Dashde from the cloudes the waters flott againe;The welkin opes; the yellow levynne flies;And the hot fierie smothe in the wide lowings dies.thomas chatterton
Every time another tribe becomes extinct and their language dies, another way of life and another way of understanding the world disappears forever. Even if it has been painstakingly studied and recorded, a language without a people to speak it means little. A language can only live if its people live, and if today’s uncontacted tribes are to have a future, we must respect their right to choose their own way of life.stephen corry
Beauty has wings, and too hastily flies,And love, unrewarded, soon sickens and dies.edward moore
One only dies once, and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost and will not present itself again.josé rizal
Whether a man goes down with a law bullet in a vital part or is wearied out as is the fish before being landed, where he may gasp his life out; whether he dies with one convulsion after a swallow of prussic acid or dreamily passes away in the solace of an opium overdraught, is perhaps no matter in the end. In the processes there is a vast difference, but the tombstones the reports of that Court which has the last say read very much alike. The figure is, perhaps, not a bad one.Author unidentified.
Facilis descensus Averno; Noctes atque dies patet atri janua Ditis; Sed revocare gradum, superasque evadere ad auras, Hoc opus, hic labor est.The gates of hell are open night and day;
Fortunati ambo! si quid mea carmina possunt, Nulla dies uuquam memori vos eximet aevo.Cf. Dryden's translation:
Das, worin man die nationalen Unterschiede findet, ist viel mehr, als man bis jetzt eingesehen hat, nur der Unterschied verschiedener Kulturstufen und zum geringstenTeile etwas Bleibendes (und auch dies nicht in einem strengen Sinne). National differences consist, far more than has hitherto been observed, only in the differences of variousgrades of culture, and are only to a very small extent permanent (and not even that in a strict sense).Nachgelassene Fragmente.

If, for example, one day Ki Bagoes Hadikoesoemo becomes the Indonesian Head of State, and dies, won't his child be [his replacement]? Then because of that I do not adhere to the principle of monarchism.sukarno
The gates of hell are open night and day;
Smooth the descent, and easy is the way:
But to return, and view the cheerful skies,
In this the task and mighty labor lies.
Facilis descensus Averni: Noctes atque dies patet atri ianua Ditis; Sed revocare gradium superasque evadere ad auras, Hoc opus, hic labor est.
Once, once for all, if you would save your heart from breaking, learn this lesson once for all you must cease, in this world, to believe in the eternity of any creed or form at all. Whatever grows in time is a child of time, and is born and lives, and dies at its appointed day like ourselves.james anthony froude

Pantheismus und Pandeismus, Monismus und Dualismus: alles dies sind in Wirklichkeit nur verschiedene Formen des Gottschauens, verschiedene Beleuchtungsarten des Grundbegriffes, nämlich des Höchsten, von dem aus die verschiedenen Strahlungen in die Menschenseele sich hineinsenken und hier ein Spiegelbild projizieren, dessen Wahrnehmung die charakteriologische Eigenart des Einzelindividuums, die durch zeitliches, familiäres und soziologisches Milieu bedingte Auffassungsgabe vermittelt."Pantheism and Pandeism, Monism and Dualism: all these are really just different forms of God-light, various types of illumination of the basic concept, namely the highest, the height from which the various radiations in the human soul and project here is a mirror image, the perception of the characteristic nature of the individual, mediated by the temporal, familial and sociological milieu caused apprehension."
Venit summa dies et ineluctabile tempus.Cf. Conington's translation: 'Tis come, our fated day of death.
