Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound.
      - Isaac Watts,
        Hymns and Spiritual Songs--Funeral Thoughts
         (bk. II, vol. IX, hymn 63)

One may live as a conqueror, a king or a magistrate; but he must die as a man. The bed of death brings every human being to his pure individuality; to the intense contemplation of that deepest and most solemn of all relations, the relation between the creature and his Creator. Here it is that fame and renown cannot assist us; that all external things must fail to aid us; that even friends, affection and human love and devotedness cannot succor us.
      - Daniel Webster

The bed of death brings every human being to his pure individuality; to the intense contemplation of that deepest and most solemn of all relations, the relation between the creature and his Creator.
      - Daniel Webster

Death hath ten thousand several doors
  For men to take their exits.
      - John Webster

I know death hath ten thousand several doors
  For men to take their exits.
      - John Webster, Duchess of Malfi
         (act IV, sc. 2)

I saw him even now going the way of all flesh.
      - John Webster, Westward Ho (act II, sc. 2)

Like Moses to thyself convey,
  And kiss my raptur'd soul away.
      - Samuel Wesley, the Elder, Collection Hymn
         (229, folio 221)

It is hard
  To feel the hand of death arrest one's steps,
    Throw a chill blight o'er all one's budding hopes,
      And hurl one's soul untimely to the shades
        Lost in the gaping gulf of blank oblivion.
      - Henry Kirke White

Joy, shipmate, joy
  (Pleas'd to my soul at death I cry,)
    Our life is closed, our life begins,
      The long, long anchorage we leave,
        The ship is clear at last, she leaps!
          Joy, shipmate, joy!
      - Walt Whitman, Joy, Shipmate, Joy

O, I see that life cannot exhibit all to me, as day cannot,
  I see that I am to wait for what will be exhibited by death.
      - Walt Whitman, Night on the Prairies

Nothing can happen more beautiful than death.
      - Walt Whitman, Stating from Paumanok
         (no. 12)

God giveth quietness at last.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

It is infamy to die, and not be missed.
      - Carlos Wilcox

Alas, I am dying beyond my means.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        as he sipped champagne on his deathbed

I am dying beyond my means.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

I am in a duel to the death with this wallpaper, one of us has got to go.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        a month before he died on his bed

Don't look forward to the day when you stop suffering, because
  when it comes you'll know that you're dead.
      - Tennessee Williams

It is not the fear of death
  That damps my brow;
    It is not for another breath
      I ask thee now;
        I could die with a lip unstirred.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis,
        paraphrase of Andre's letter to Washington

How beautiful it is for a man to die
  Upon the walls of Zion! to be called
    Like a watch-worn and weary sentinel,
      To put his armour off, and rest in heaven!
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis,
        On the Death of a Missionary

For I know that Death is a guest divine,
  Who shall drink my blood as I drink this wine;
    And he cares for nothing! a king is he--
      Come on, old fellow, and drink with me!
        With you I will drink to the solemn past,
          Though the cup that I drain should be my last.
      - William Winter,
        Orgia--The Song of a Ruined Man

If I had thought thou couldst have died
  I might not weep for thee;
    But I forgot, when by thy side,
      That thou couldst mortal be;
        It never through my mind had passed,
          That time would e'er be o'er
            When I on thee should look my last,
              And thou shouldst smile no more!
      - Rev. Charles Wolfe,
        Song--The Death of Mary

But he lay like a warrior taking his rest,
  With his martial cloak around him.
      - Rev. Charles Wolfe,
        The Burial of Sir John Moore

Death is the quiet haven of us all.
      - William Wordsworth

The good die first; and they whose hearts are dry as summer dust burn to the socket.
      - William Wordsworth

O, sir! the good die first,
  And they whose hearts are dry as summer dust
    Burn to the socket.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion (bk. I)
