You can still die when the sun is shining.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Being dead's only a problem if you know you're dead, which you never do because you're dead!

The Corrections
Are we so made that we have to take death in small doses daily or we could not go on with the business of living?

I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
When you die it's the same as if everybody else did too.

The Road
What makes the loss even more sensitive, are the language codes between him and us, that suddenly become useless and empty.

Villa Triste
The war against death, dear Harry, is always a beautiful, noble, and wonderful, and glorious thing, and so, it follows, is the war against war. But it is always hopeless and quixotic too.

I believe that the struggle against death, the unconditional and self-willed determination to live, is the mode of power behind the lives and activities of all outstanding men.

A person's last moments are an important thing. You can't choose how you're born but you can choose how you die.

Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.
