Favorite Obituaries Quotes

1. "Obituaries are like near-death experiences for cowards."
Author: Austin Kleon
2. "I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure."
Author: Clarence Darrow
3. "When I read obituaries I always note the age of the deceased. Automatically I relate this figure to my own age. Four years to go, I think. Nine more years. Two years and I'm dead. The power of numbers is never more evident than when we use them to speculate on the time of our dying."
Author: Don DeLillo
4. "People die every day. That was the most comforting thought Brás had while all the obituaries he wrote at the newspaper flashed before him. He just realized that, even when he's not writing about it, people will keep dying. Isn't it funny how easily forget about work the moment they leave for the day? Isn't it strange how we always seem to remember the trivial things from our daily lives, yet we so often forget the most important ones?"
Author: Gabriel Bá
5. "A popular Harvard business professor urged his students to read the obituaries in the New York Times before they read anything else, in order to learn from the lives of great men."
Author: Georges F. Doriot
6. "The most cursory examination of even the most progressive organs of information reveals a curious inability to recognize women as newsmakers, unless they are young or married to a head of state or naked or pregnant by some triumph of technology or perpetrators or victims of some hideous crime or any combiniation of the above. Women's issues are often disguised as people issues, unless they are relegated to the women's pages which amazingly still suvive. Senior figures are all male; even the few women who are deemed worthy of obituaries are shown in images from their youth, as if the last fourty years of their lives have been without achievement of any kind. If you analyse the by-lines in your morning paper, you will see that the senior editorial staff are all older men, supported by a rabble of junior females, the infinitely replacesable 'hackettes'."
Author: Germaine Greer
7. "I feel like my career has been a series of glowing obituaries."
Author: Michael Ian Black
8. "I scrolled on down to the obituaries. I usually read the obituaries first as there is always the happy chance that one of them will make my day."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
9. "It's like obituaries, when you die they finally give you good reviews."
Author: Roger Maris
10. "My friend, blood shaking my heartThe awful daring of a moment's surrenderWhich an age of prudence can never retractBy this, and this only, we have existedWhich is not to be found in our obituariesOr in memories draped by the beneficent spiderOr under seals broken by the lean solicitorIn our empty rooms"
Author: T.S. Eliot
