Some Famous People ... On Death they said

The human animal is a beast that dies but the fact that he’s dying don’t give him pity for others, no sir.
TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof


Cowards die many times before their deaths
The valiant never taste of death but once.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Julius Caesar


We all labour against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.

SIR THOMAS BROWNE, Religio Medici


Death, in itself, is nothing; but we fear,

To be we know not what, we know not where.

JOHN DRYDEN, Aureng-Zebe


Our life dreams the Utopia. Our death achieves the Ideal.

VICTOR HUGO, Intellectual Autobiography


You only live twice. Once when you are born and once when you look death in the face.

IAN FLEMING, You Only Live Twice


Morn after morn dispels the dark,

Bearing our lives away;

Absorbed in cares we fail to mark

How swift our years decay;

Some maddening draught hath drugged our souls,

In love with vital breath,

Which still the same sad chart unrolls,

Birth, eld, disease, and death.

BHARTRHARI, "Against the Desire of Worldly Things

Let there be no fear in my eye when i see death staring at me.. as i know by then i will have won many battles with death itself.
Lets live one more time, not with fear in our heart but with pride in our eye.
Lets goto ladakh again and conquer death. yet again....
