What’s not to like about the internet? Whatever you want to learn, the internet has it available for free. Whatever you want to believe, there is sufficient information (and, misinformation) to reinforce your beliefs.
What can the internet offer to someone who has only days to live? Miracle cures? Or, gallows humor?
I suspect some of both so let’s go with 145 Death Quotes?
Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.
I understand the sentiment but I would prefer to live and not die. Maybe something was lost in the translation. Kanji be hard.
That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.
So much for the afterlife.
To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
The Bible describes death as sleeping. All adventures come after sleeping. Except maybe to Harry Potter.
Henry David Thoreau:
Live your life, do your work, then take your hat.

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
Other than wet, no, they’re not one. They’re different. Good grief.
No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.
What if you didn’t cause any ripples?
Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.
That won’t be much of a conversation, though.
Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.

Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time… It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other.
It’s hard to argue with that.
A normal human being does not want the Kingdom of Heaven: he wants life on earth to continue.
What would life be worth if there were no death? Who would enjoy the sun if it never rained? Who would yearn for the day if there were no night?
I don’t equate death and life with sun, rain, day, or night.
Why should I fear death? If I am, death is not. If death is, I am not. Why should I fear that which cannot exist when I do?
Stick to cooking, dude.
You needn’t die happy when your time comes, but you must die satisfied, for you have lived your life from the beginning to the end.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
I like that.
Everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Jean de La Fontaine:
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
OK, I am ready. What does that say?
