Favorite Imminent Death Quotes

1. "Those who romanticize war often like to think of it, at least in areas of mortal peril, as nothing but "guts and glory." Those who are inclined to pacifism, by contrast, often think of it as an unbroken sequence of horrors. Actually, however, people in wartime still fall in love, do the laundry, worry about pimples, drink beer, and do most of the same things that they do in times of peace. The patterns of daily life may be mundane, but they are remarkably tenacious. But, while people in wartime still go about their daily routines, the prospect of imminent death can give even quotidian chores a heightened intensity. When the first bombs were dropped on London in autumn of 1940, the population bore adversity better than almost anybody had expected. The danger was mixed with excitement, and the terror had a sort of apocalyptic magnificence."

2. "Far richer they! I know the senses' witcheryGuards us, like air, from heavens too big to see;Imminent death to man that barb'd sublimityAnd dazzling edge of beauty unsheathed would be.Yet here, within this tiny, charm'd interior,This parlour of the brain, their Maker sharesWith living men some secrets in a privacy Forever ours, not theirs."
Author: C.S. Lewis
3. "When all usefulness is over, when one is assured of an unavoidable and imminent death, it is the simplest of human rights to choose a quick and easy death in place of a slow and horrible one."
Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
4. "If I can't joke about imminent death, then I might as well just resign."

Author: Marcia Angell
7. "Desire! It carries us and crucifies us, delivers us every new day to a battlefield where, on the eve, the battle was lost; but in sunlight does it not look like a territory ripe for conquest, a place where - even though tomorrow we will die - we can build empires doomed to fade to dust, as if the knowledge we have of their imminent fall had absolutely no effect on our eagerness to build them now? We are filled with the energy of constantly wanting that which we cannot have, we are abandoned at dawn on a field littered with corpses, we are transported until our death by projects that are no sooner completed than they must be renewed. Yet how exhausting it is to be constantly desiring..."
Author: Muriel Barbery
8. "But as he stands before imminent death, he grasps its nature also, and the cosmic import of the step to come. His creative imagination constructs new, fearful prospects behind the curtain of death, and he sees that even there is no sanctuary found. And now he can discern the outline of his biologico-cosmic terms: He is the universe's helpless captive, kept to fall into nameless possibilities. From this moment on, he is in a state of relentless panic."
Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe
9. "Embrace the probability of your imminent death....and know there is nothing i can do to save you."
Author: Suzanne Collins
10. "Rightly to be greatIs not to stir without great argument,But greatly to find quarrel in a strawWhen honor's at the stake. How stand I then,That have a father killed, a mother stained,Excitements of my reason and my blood,And let all sleep—while, to my shame, I seeThe imminent death of twenty thousand men,That for a fantasy and trick of fameGo to their graves like beds, fight for a plotWhereon the numbers cannot try the cause,Which is not tomb enough and continentTo hide the slain? Oh, from this time forth,My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!"
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

Queridas mulheres, vocês honram muito mais a espécie humana do que os homens. Eles falharam historicamente em liderá-la. Se vocês dominassem o mundo, a humanidade seria mais feliz. Se as mulheres fossem generais, não haveria guerras, pois vocês não teriam coragem de enviar seus filhos para os campos de batalha. Mas os homens, por muito pouco, os enviam. Por isso, de coração, em nome de todos os homens lúcidos desta Terra, eu gostaria de pedir desculpas por todos os males que fizemos a vocês ao longo da história. Obrigado por vocês serem mulheres."
