What are the TOP 10 death quotes by Mark Twain?


  1. I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.


  2. The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.


  3. All say, How hard it is that we have to die -- a strange complaint to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.


  4. I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.




  5. Annihilation has no terrors for me, because I have already tried it before I was born --a hundred million years --and I have suffered more in an hour, in this life, than I remember to have suffered in the whole hundred million years put together. There was a peace, a serenity, an absence of all sense of responsibility, an absence of worry, an absence of care, grief, perplexity; and the presence of a deep content and unbroken satisfaction in that hundred million years of holiday which I look back upon with a tender longing and with a grateful desire to resume, when the opportunity comes.


  6. Whoever has lived long enough to find out what life is, knows how deep a debt of gratitude we owe to Adam, the first great benefactor of our race. He brought death into the world.


  7. We owe a deep debt of gratitude to Adam, the first great benefactor of the human race: he brought death into the world.


  8. We never become really and genuinely our entire and honest selves until we are dead -- and not then until we have been dead years and years. People ought to start dead and then they would be honest so much earlier.


  9. Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain.


  10. The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
