For three days after death, hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
      - Johnny Carson

He who fears death has already lost the life he covets.
      - Cato (Marcus Porcius Cato "The Elder") (a/k/a Cato the Censor)

Who now travels that dark path from whose bourne they say no one returns.
  [Lat., Qui nunc it per iter tenebricosum
    Illue unde negant redire quemquam.]
      - Catullus (Caius Quintus Valerius Catullus),
        Carmina (III, 11)

Suns may set and rise; we, when our short day has closed, must sleep on during one neverending night.
  [Lat., Soles occidere et redire possunt;
    Nobis cum semel occidit brevis lux,
      Nox est perpetua una dormienda.]
      - Catullus (Caius Quintus Valerius Catullus),
        Carmina (V, 4)

When death hath poured oblivion through my veins,
  And brought me home, as all are brought, to lie
    In that vast house, common to serfs and thanes,--
      I shall not die, I shall not utterly die,
        For beauty born of beauty--that remains.
      - Madison Julius Cawein

There is a remedy for everything but death; who, in spite of our teeth, will take us in his clutches.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

"For all that let me tell thee, brother Panza," said Don Quixote, "that there is no recollection which time does not put an end to, and no pain which death does not remove."
  "And what greater misfortune can there be," replied Panza, "than the one that waits for time to put an end to it and death to remove it?"
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (pt. I, ch. XV)

It singeth low in every heart,
  We hear it each and all,--
    A song of those who answer not,
      However we may call;
        They throng the silence of the breast,
          We see them as of yore,--
            The kind, the brave, the true, the sweet,
              Who walk with us no more.
      - John White Chadwick, Auld Lang Syne

The character wherewith we sink into the grave at death is the very character wherewith we shall reappear at the resurrection.
      - Thomas Chalmers

Death makes a beautiful appeal to charity. When we look upon the dead form, so composed and still, the kindness and the love that are in us all come forth.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Death, is not an end, but a transition crisis. All the forms of decay are but masks of regeneration--the secret alembics of vitality.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Setting is preliminary to brighter rising; decay is a process of advancement; death is the condition of higher and more fruitful life.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

There is a sweet anguish springing up in our bosoms when a child's face brightens under the shadow of the waiting angel. There is an autumnal fitness when age gives up the ghost; and when the saint dies there is a tearful victory.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Death is a silent, peaceful genius, who rocks our second childhood to sleep in the cradle of the coffin.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

The sleeping partner of life--a change of existence.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

At length, fatigued with life, he bravely fell,
  And health with Boerhaave bade the world farewell.
      - Benjamin Church, The Choice

Death is dreadful to the man whose all is extinguished with his life; but not to him whose glory never can die.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Some men make a womanish complaint that it is a great misfortune to die before our time. I would ask what time? Is it that of Nature? But she, indeed, has lent us life, as we do a sum of money, only no certain day is fixed for payment. What reason then to complain if she demands it at pleasure, since it was on this condition that you received it.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

That last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

The whole life of a philosopher is the meditation of his death.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

I depart from life as from an inn, and not as from my home.
  [Lat., Ex vita discedo, tanquam ex hospitio, non tanquam ex domo.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Senectute (23)

The divinity who rules within us, forbids us to leave this world without his command.
  [Lat., Vetat dominans ille in nobis deus, injussu hinc nos suo demigrare.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Tusculanarum Disputationum (I, 30)

There are countless roads on all sides to the grave.
  [Lat., Undique enim ad inferos tantundem viae est.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Tusculanarum Disputationum (I, 43)

The last day does not bring extinction to us, but change of place.
  [Lat., Supremus ille dies non nostri extinctionem sed commutationem affert loci.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Tusculanarum Disputationum (I, 49)

I do not wish to die: but I care not if I were dead.
  [Lat., Emori nolo: sed me esse mortuum nihil aestimo.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),

        translation of verse of Epicharmus
