Death completes the cycle that birth starts. Read this collection of death quotes to discover how major personalities in English literature viewed death.

William Wordsworth

As in the eye of Nature he has lived, So in the eye of Nature let him die!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good bye, proud world! I’m going home; Thou art not my friend; I am not thine.

Walt Whitman

Beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage, must in time be utterly lost;

Francis Bacon

What then remains but that we still should cry, For being born, and, being born, to die?

Alexander Pope

’T is true,’t is certain; man though dead retains, Part of himself: the immortal mind remains.

Alexander Pope

Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly! O grave! where is thy victory? O death! where is thy sting?

William Wordsworth

A simple child, That lightly draws its breath, And feels its life in every limb, What should it know of death?
