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.
Facilis descensus Averno; Noctes atque dies patet atri janua Ditis; Sed revocare gradum, superasque evadere ad auras, Hoc opus, hic labor est.
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
Love masters agony; the soul that seemedForsaken feels her present God againAnd in her Father's armsContented dies away.john keble
Beauty has wings, and too hastily flies,And love, unrewarded, soon sickens and dies.edward moore
It is a melancholy but an undoubted fact, that, even in the most thriving countries, part of the population annually dies of mere want. Not that all who perish from want absolutely die of hunger; though this calamity is of more frequent occurrence than is generally supposed.jean-baptiste say
One only dies once, and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost and will not present itself again.josé rizal
Parting day dies like the dolphin, whom each pang imbues With a new colour as it gasps away, The last still loveliest, till 'tis gone and all is gray.lord byron
18th September, 1970; Jimi Hendrix dies. I'm still on the football team when I get the news. So I take my helmet off and confront the coach to tell him I'm quitting the team. In a moment of brilliance he gives me one look and says "OK".joe satriani
Stat sua cuique dies, breve et inreparabile tempus Omnibus est vitae; sed famam extendere factis, Hoc virtutis opus.virgil
Well, I don't need protection One life begins, another dies Bad timing I won't lastjohn frusciante
The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun.francis william bourdillon
The Rose has but a Summer reign, The daisy never dies.james montgomery
If heaven send no supplies, The fairest blossom of the garden dies.william browne
Fortunati ambo! si quid mea carmina possunt, Nulla dies uuquam memori vos eximet aevo.
Bataan is like a child in a family who dies. It lives in our hearts.
