Death Quotes


“In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.” So said Benjamin Franklin. And while taxes can be painful, its pain pales in comparison to the loss of a loved one, a dear friend or even a family pet. In our time of grief, the sympathetic words of compassion, warmth and understanding can help heal us so we can move on with our lives, never forgetting those we’ve lost in our hearts and minds. Through the wisdom of death quotes, we learn the fragile nature of life and learn to live it fully, knowing that while it can be all too short, it can offer great purpose.
