5 quotes about death that will make you think

Quotes about deathThe death of a friend or close relative always makes us think about our own mortality, particularly as we get older. As I attended a funeral just yesterday I’m in a philosophical frame of mind today, so I’m looking back at quotes about death.

We’re all going to die; the only questions are when and how? The important thing is to make the most of our lives whilst we can. And in relation to our loved ones, we must take every opportunity to enjoy their company whilst it’s still possible. None of us can know what will happen tomorrow. And none of us can know when a loved one will be taken from us, for whatever reason.

We are constantly reminded through News stories about how lives can be cruelly cut short. So many tragedies involving multiple deaths in the United States, in Europe and in wars all around the world. How sad these events can be, particularly for the families and friends of the victims. Lives lost means lives changed irrevocably.

Life is short and the years go by in the blink of an eye. So we must ensure that we’ve got our priorities right. Remember always; we work to live, not live to work. Careers are all very well but they won’t take care of you should you become sick or infirm. Should that happen, you’ll depend on your family and friends.

Here are five quotes about death that will help you reflect on it’s significance and the importance of making the most of your life and the people you love. Live now and have no regrets.
