You're born. You suffer. You die. Fortunately, there's a loophole.
- Billy Graham
Death to the Christian is the funeral of all his sorrows and evils, and the resurrection, of all his joys.
- James H. Aughey
How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.
- George Macdonald
They, then, who are destined to die, need not be careful to inquire what death they are to die, but into what place death will usher them.
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.
- William Penn
The world is put back by the death of everyone who has to sacrifice the development of his or her peculiar gifts to conventionality.
- Florence Nightingale
Ye have lost a child; nay, she is not lost to you, who is found in Christ; she is not sent away, but only sent before; like unto a star which, going out of sight, does not die and vanish, but shines in another hemisphere.
- Samuel Rutherford
Six feet by two-and-a-half is all the ground that the richest man in England will shortly occupy.

A wretched, poor and helpless worm, on Thy kind arms I fall.
- William Carey
100 per cent of us die, and the percentage cannot be increased.
- C.S. Lewis
We scarce conceive how easy it is to rob God of his due, in our friendship with the most virtuous persons, until they are torn from us by death. But if this loss produces lasting sorrow, that is a clear proof that we had before two treasures, between which we divided our heart.
- John Wesley
I am not tired of my work, neither am I tired of the world; yet, when Christ calls me home, I shall go with gladness.
- Adoniram Judson
I am so glad God will never allow a man to go comfortably and peacefully to eternal death. He never allows any man to be lost until He has done His best to save him.
- Clovis G. Chappell
There is nothing more tragic than to come to the end of life and know we have been on the wrong course.
- Watchman Nee
He whose head is in heaven need not fear to put his feet into the grave.
- Matthew Henry
At the place of execution, he again said a short prayer and then climbed the steps to the gallows, brave and composed. His death ensued after a few seconds. In almost fifty years that I worked as a doctor, I have hardly ever seen a man die so entirely submissive to the will of God.
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
- Martin Luther
You have come into a hard world. I know of only one easy place in it, and that is the grave.
- Henry Ward Beecher
There is one single fact which we may oppose to all the wit and argument of infidelity, namely, that no man ever repented of being a Christian on his death-bed.
- Hannah More
Death is not more certainly a separation of our souls from our bodies than the Christian life is a separation of our souls from worldly tempers, vain indulgences, and unnecessary cares.
- William Law
There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly. Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. To the sinner it is an execution, to the saint an undressing from his sins and infirmities. Death to the wicked is the King of terrors. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory.
- Charles Spurgeon
You will tell the others that I am going home a little sooner than I thought. Then tell them not to talk about the servant but to talk about the Savior.
- F.B. Meyer
