Death to a good man is but passing through a dark entry, out of one little dusky room of his Father's house into another that is fair and large, lightsome and glorious, and divinely entertaining.
      - Adam Clarke

Death levels all things.
  [Lat., Omnia mors aequant.]
      - Claudian (Claudianus),
        De Raptu Proserpinoe (II, 302)

There is before the eyes of men, on the brink of dissolution, a glassy film, which death appears to impart, that they may have a brief prospect of eternity when some behold the angels of light, while others have the demons of darkness before them.
      - Henry Cockton

Death but supplies the oil for the inextinguishable lamp of life.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Death came with friendly care, the opening bud to heaven conveyed, and bade it blossom there.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

How well he fell asleep!
  Like some proud river, widening toward the sea;
    Calmly and grandly, silently and deep,
      Life joined eternity.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Let us not doubt that God has a father's pity towards us, and that in the removal of that which is dearest to us He is still loving and kind. Death separates, but it also unites. It reunites whom it separates.
      - Abraham Coles

The more we sink into the infirmities of age, the nearer we are to immortal youth. All people are young in the other world. That state is an eternal spring, ever fresh and flourishing. Now, to pass from midnight into noon on the sudden, to be decrepit one minute and all spirit and activity the next, must be a desirable change. To call this dying is an abuse of language.
      - Jeremy Collier

Death levels master and slave, the sceptre and the law and makes the unlike like.
  [Lat., Mors dominos servis et sceptra ligonibus aequat,
    Dissimiles simili conditione trahens.]
      - in Walter Colman,
        La Danse Machabre or Death's Duell

Death is like thunder in two particulars; we are alarmed, at the sound of it; and it is formidable only from that which preceded it.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Death is the liberator of him whom freedom cannot release, the physician of him whom medicine cannot cure, and the comforter of him whom time cannot console.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The hand that unnerved Belshazzar derived its most horrifying influence from the want of a body, and death itself is not formidable in what we do know of it, but in what we do not.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honors depend upon heaven.
      - Confucius

Death comes with a crawl or he comes with a pounce,
  And whether he's slow, or spry,
    It isn't the fact that you're dead that counts,
      But only, how did you die?
      - Edmund Vance Cooke, How Did You Die?

Death is appalling to those of the most iron nerves, when it comes quietly and in the stillness and solitude of night.
      - James Fenimore Cooper

Every moment of life is a step towards death.
      - Pierre Corneille

He who does not fear death cares naught for threats.
  [Lat., Qui ne craint point la mort ne craint point les menaces.]
      - Pierre Corneille, Le Cid (II, 1)

Death is the tyrant of the imagination.
      - Barry Cornwall (pseudonym of Bryan Waller Procter)

I scarcely know how it is, but the deaths of children seem to me always less premature than those of older persons. Not that they are in fact so, but it is because they themselves have little or no relation to time or maturity.
      - Barry Cornwall (pseudonym of Bryan Waller Procter)

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
      - Norman Cousins

Far happier are the dead methinks than they who look for death and fear it every day.
      - William Cowper

We turn to dust, and all our mightiest works die too.
      - William Cowper

All flesh is grass. and all its glory fades
  Like the fair flower dishevell'd in the wind;
    Riches have wings, and grandeur is a dream;
      The man we celebrate must find a tomb,
        And we that worship him, ignoble graves.
      - William Cowper, Task (bk. III, l. 261)

All has its date below; the fatal hour
  Was register'd in Heav'n ere time began.
    We turn to dust, and all our mightiest works
      Die too.
      - William Cowper, Task
         (bk. V, The Winter Morning Walk, l. 540)

She'l bargain with them; and will giue
  Them GOD; teach them how to liue
    In him; or if they this deny,
      For him she'l teach them how to Dy.
      - Richard Crashaw,
        Hymn to the Name and Honor of Saint Teresa
