Soon the shroud shall lap thee fast,
  And the sleep be on thee cast
    That shall ne'er know waking.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Guy Mannering
         (ch. XXVII)

Like the dew on the mountain,
  Like the foam on the river,
    Like the bubble on the fountain,
      Thou are gone, and for ever!
      - Sir Walter Scott, The Lady of the Lake
         (canto III, st. 16)

Death is a stage in human progress, to be passed as we would pass from childhood to youth, or from youth to manhood, and with the same consciousness of an everlasting nature.

  At some disputed barricade.

So die as though your funeral
  Ushered you through the doors that led
    Into a stately banquet hall
      Where heroes banqueted.
      - Alan Seeger, Maktoob

Death is a release from and an end of all pains.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

The most happy ought to wish for death.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

The pomp of death alarms us more than death itself.
  [Lat., Pompa mortis magis terret quam mors ipsa.]
      - quoted by Bacon Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

What is death but a ceasing to b what we were before? We are kindled, and put out, we die daily; nature that begot us expels us, and a better and safer place is provided for us.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

What new thing then is it for a man to die, whose whole life is nothing else but a journey to death?
  [Lat., Quid est enim novi, hominem mori, cujus tota vita nihil aliud quam ad mortem iter est?]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        De Consolatione ad Polybium (XI)

It is an extreme evil to depart from the company of the living before you die.
  [Lat., Ultimum malorum est ex vivorum numero exire antequam moriaris.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        De Tranquillitate Animi (V, v)

They will not live, and do not know how to die.
  [Lat., Vivere nolunt, et mori nesciunt.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Epistles

They are not lost but sent before.
  [Lat., Non amittuntur sed praemittuntur.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Epistles
         (LXIII, 16)

It is folly to die of the fear of death.
  [Lat., Stultitia est timore mortis mori.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Epistles

This day, which thou fearest as thy last, is the birthday of eternity.
  [Lat., Dies iste, quem tamquam extremum reformidas, aeterni natilis est.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (CII)

It is uncertain in what place death may await thee; therefore expect it in any place.
  [Lat., Incertum est quo te loco mors expectet: itaque tu illam omni loco expecta.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XXVI)

Sometimes death is a punishment; often a gist; it has been a favor to many.
  [Lat., Interim poena est mori,
    Sed saepe donum; pluribus veniae fuit.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Hercules Oetoeus (CMXXX)

Any one may take like from man, but no one death; a thousand gates stand open to it.
  [Lat., Eripere vitam nemo non homini potest;
    At nemo mortem; mille ad hanc aditus patent.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Phoenissoe

To die without fear of death is to be desired.
  [Lat., Optanda mors ets, sine metu mortis mori.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Troades

And there at Venice gave
  His body to that pleasant country's earth,
    And his pure soul unto his captain Christ,
      Under whose colours he had fought so long.
      - William Shakespeare

By medicine life may be prolong'd, yet death
  Will seize the doctor too.
      - William Shakespeare

Death lies on her like an untimely frost
  Upon the sweetest flower of all the field.
      - William Shakespeare

Death, as the psalmist with, is certain to all; all shall die.
      - William Shakespeare
