We are born to love as we are born to die, and between

We are born to love as we are born to die, and between the heartbeats of these two great mysteries lies all the tangled undergrowth of our tiny lives. There is nowhere to go but through. And so we walk on, lost, and lost again, in the mapless wilderness of love.

Madness. I did not get myself born to die. I have better things to do.
Tanith Lee
Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise and rudely great…
He hangs between; in doubt to act or rest;
In doubt to deem himself a god, or beast;
In doubt his mind or body to prefer;
Born to die, and reasoning but to err.
Alexander Pope
We are all born to die—the difference is the intensity with which we choose to live.

What, then, remains but that we still should cry, For being born, and, being born, to die?
Francis Bacon
A mass of dust, world’s momentary slave, Is man, in state of our old Adam made, Soon born to die, soon flourishing to fade.
Barnabe Barnes
I seem to be the only person in the world who doesn’t mind being pitied. If you love me, pity me. The human state is pitiable: born to die, capable of so much, accomplishing so little; killing instead of creating, destroying instead of building, hating instead of loving. Pitiful, pitiful.
Jessamyn West

Pietro Aretino
Dogs have fleas; people have each other. We are born to die. Life is a continuing tragic comedy. Everything and everyone we love suffers. Anybody who doesn’t see that has not grown up and known life.
Frederick Lenz
But if you ever come to a road where danger; Or guilt or anguish or shame’s to share. Be good to the lad who loves you true, And the soul that was born to die for you; And whistle and I’ll be there.
A. E. Housman
We are born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Everything in-between is a gift.
Yul Brynner
We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.
Orson Welles
We were born to die; we were born to endure, on the way to death, sorrow-sorrow in manifold shapes.
Cynthia Ozick
Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you’re born to die.
