13.  Though fallen thyself, never to rise again,

Live and take comfort.  Thou has left behind

Powers that will work for thee; air, earth and skies;

There’s not a breathing of the common wind

That will forget thee. Thou hast great allies;

Thy friends are exultations, agonies

And love, And man’s unconquerable mind. (Life’s Like That & Death)  William Wordsworth, Toussaint L’Ouverture 1807

 

 

47,730.  The good die first,

And they whose hearts are dry as summer dust

But to the socket.  (Good & Death)  William Wordsworth, The Excursion

 

 

128,259.  I’m happy to be getting out.  I mean, it’s been hell.  (Boxers: Ali & Retirement & Resignation & Death & Life’s Like That)  Muhammad Ali, cited What’s My Name 

 

 

56.  God is dead.  (God & Death)  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

cf.

 

57.  Nietzsche is dead.  GOD  (God & Death)  Anon, 29th March 2003

 

 

76,408.  We’re all dead.  (Hotel & Dead)  Fawlty Towers: The Builders s1e2 Polly to Basil, Basil to Polly

 

 

366.  A man can have but one life and one death,

One heaven, one hell.  (Religion & Life’s Like That & Death & Heaven & Hell & Life After Death)  Robert Browning, In a Balcony

 

 

38,841.  The dead govern the living.  (Govern & Dead)  Auguste Comte

 

 

86,031.  We all live under the constant threat of our own annihilation.  Only by the most outrageous violation of ourselves have we achieved our capacity to live in relative adjustment to a civilization apparently driven to its own destruction.  (Psychology & Death)  R D Laing, The Politics of Experience/ The Bird of Paradise

 

 

405.  I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue.  But much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful thinking.  The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence.  Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.  (Religion & Death & Like's Like That)  Carl Sagan, In the Valley of the Shadow, cited Parade magazine 10 March 1996; viz Carl Sagan, Billions and Billions: Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium 1997 p245

 

 

9,180.  The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence.  Far better, it seems to me, to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.  Carl Sagan, Billions and Billions: Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium

 

 

9,403.  We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones.  Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born.  The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia.  Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton.  We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people.  In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here.  We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?  (Death & Life’s Like That & Life & DNA)  Richard Dawkins, Unweaving the Rainbow
 

 

2,488.  We are going to die.  And that makes us the lucky ones.  (Faith & Death)  Professor Richard Dawkins, The Root of All Evil? The Virus of Faith 

 

 

564.  Religion denies death is real.  (Religion & Meaning of Life & Death)  Richard Dawkins, Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life II, Channel 4 2012

 

565.  Intuition rebels: we seem to want to believe that there’s some essence of ourselves: something that would not go across with all those molecules, something that a religious person might want to all a soul.   

 

It’s so hard to shake off the religious way of death.  We are programmed to believe in something like a soul. 

 

Religion still dominates our thinking about death.  (Religion & Meaning of Life & Death & Soul)  ibid.

 

 

5,685.  However many ways there may be of being alive, it is certain that there are vastly more ways of being dead.  (Evolution & Life & Death)  Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker 1986 ch1

 

5,686.  The essence of life is statistically improbability on a colossal scale.  (Evolution & Life & Death)  ibid.  ch11

 

 

9,702.  Do I fear death?  No, I am not afraid of being dead because there's nothing to be afraid of, I won't know it.  I fear dying, of dying I feel a sense of waste about it and I fear a sordid death, where I am incapacitated or imbecilic at the end which isn’t something to be afraid of, it’s something to be terrified of.  (Fear & Death & Afraid)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

83,482.  Those of who merely face oblivion have less to fear.  Professor Richard Dawkins, interview Adam Boulton Sky News 2008

 

 

615.  Religion is a real danger to the survival of civilisation ... It will be the death of us all.  (Religion & Civilisation & Death)  Christopher Hitchens v Tony Blair: Is Religion a Force for Good in the World? 2010

 

 

9,240.  I do not fear death.  I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.  Mark Twain, attributed and unsourced, cited Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

 

 

11,847.  Whoever has lived long enough to find out what life is, knows how deep a debt of gratitude we owe to Adam, the first great benefactor of our race.  He brought death into the world.  (Adam & Eve & Death)  Mark Twain, Pudd’nhead Wilson 1894

 

 

805.  Truth sits upon the lips of dying men.  (Truth & Death)  Matthew Arnold, Sohrab and Rustum, 1853
