It’s like when someone dies, the initial stages of grief seem to be the worst. But in some ways, it’s sadder as time goes by and you consider how much they’ve missed in your life. In the world.
Emily Giffin
Humor is imperative, more important than food. You have a choice when someone dies. You can lie down or get back into life. Do something for someone else.
Doris Roberts
Life is precious, and when someone dies it’s an opportunity to realise how precious it is. My brother drowned when I was 17. He was 15. I think I grew from that. My father didn’t. It really crushed him.
Val Kilmer
His whole body was completely still, except the wings, which were still fluttering a little, like when someone dies. That’s when he finally understood that of all the things the angel had told him, nothing was true. That he wasn’t even an angel, just a liar with wings.
Etgar Keret
When someone dies, it is like when your house burns down; it isn’t for years that you realize the full extent of your loss.
Mark Twain
When someone dies, you don’t get over it by forgetting; you get over it by remembering, and you are aware that no person is ever truly lost or gone once they have been in our life and loved us, as we have loved them.
Leslie Marmon Silko
People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.
James O’Barr
Cadavers and spirits are human refuse, and they are absurdly difficult to dispose of properly. When someone dies, a small gang of specialists is required to remove and inter the body in such a way that it can always be located precisely at any time while preventing it from ever appearing again.
Michael Cisco
You really have to do your job as a writer and push people to be as creative as possible. What’s nice about the TV medium is you have such a connection to the characters that when somebody dies, the audience cries. They really feel it. You really don’t cry when someone dies in a horror movie.
Glen Mazzara
The photo replaces the memory. When someone dies, after a while you can’t visualize them anymore, you only remember them through their pictures.
Christian Boltanski
The best way to look at countries on a map is like a chalk outline drawn by the police when someone dies what you are seeing with the borders are just outlines of historical crimes past warlords empires its nothing to be loyal to. Have loyalty to reason, to evidence, to ideals not to lines drawn up mostly by criminals.
Stefan Molyneux
I like birthdays because we celebrate life with cakes. It’s so cool. Sometimes when I see a baby, I’m like that much more cake in the world. But then when someone dies, I’m like the cake streak is over.
Demetri Martin
The catalog of emotion that disappears when someone dies, and the degree to which we rely on a few people to record something of what life was to them, is almost too much to bear.
Sarah Manguso
And our lady friend, she thinks life works like a fairy tale.’ Well, that’s harmless, isn’t it?’ Yeah, but in fairy tales, when someone dies… it’s just a word.
Terry Pratchett
