John Adams
One of my favorite movies of all time is ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, which is a pretty interesting choice for a seasonal Christmas favorite, because it’s about a guy who wants to commit suicide and is presented with reasons not to.
Frank Darabont
Kids grow up awfully fast these days,”she said. “You should try to have a good relationship with your kids, no matter what they do.

We have no reliable guarantee that the afterlife will be any less exasperating than this one, have we?

Georges Bernanos
There had been a number of failures but we weren’t going out to ride a failure. And we felt they’d corrected all the difficulties with the boosters before that time and the launch problems. And so we had a lot of confidence that there was going to be a successful mission. We weren’t off on some suicide effort, certainly.
John Glenn
What nearly all suicide terrorist attacks have in common is a specific secular and strategic goal: to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from territory that the terrorists consider to be their homeland.
Robert Pape
One should never criticize his own work except in a fresh and hopeful mood. The self-criticism of a tired mind is suicide.
Charles Horton Cooley
A society that produces suicide murderers in quantity is essentially committing its own suicide.
Haim Harari
There is an assumption, in attaching Puritan concepts such as ‘successful’ and ‘unsuccessful’ to the awful, final act of suicide, that those who ‘fail’ at killing themselves not only are weak, but incompetent, incapable even of getting their dying quite right.
Kay Redfield Jamison
I know from my own experience that suicide is not what it seems. Too easy to try to piece together the fragmented life. The spirit torn in bits so that the body follows.
Jeanette Winterson
The American dream is shrinking because some of our leaders want it to shrink. Decline, in other words, has become a policy objective. And if this decline continues at the current pace, America as we know it will cease to exist. In effect, we will have committed national suicide.
Dinesh D’Souza
A detective who uses his deductive powers to corner a suspect and then does nothing to stop them from committing suicide is no better than a murderer himself. – Kudo Shinichi

Dave Chappelle
AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide. Or murder.
Susan Sontag
I feel as if things are falling apart within me, like so many glass partitions shattering. I walk from place to place in the grip of a fury, needing to act, yet can do nothing about it because any attempt seems doomed in advance. Failure, everywhere failure. Only suicide hovers above me, gleaming and inaccessible.
Michel Houellebecq
He was deader than a shrunken head at a Hackey Sack festival.
Scott Adams
People who go into the arts are often hurt people. Many are manic-depressive. Some have tried suicide and some have succeeded. It’s just part of the game. We are people who are oversensitive. That’s why we’re in this business, because of our need to communicate.
Mandy Patinkin
No man was ever more than about nine meals away from crime or suicide.
Eric Sevareid
The term “starvation diet” refers to 900 calories a day. I was on one-third of a starvation diet. What do you call that? One word that comes to my mind: “suicide.

Albert Camus
I know each conversation with a psychiatrist in the morning made me want to hang myself because I knew I could not strangle him.
Antonin Artaud
Why would I strike America and invite a retaliatory counterstrike that would put an end to my regime? Keep in mind, the whole point of this – my entire strategy, all our efforts and the hardships we have borne – is to ensure that my regime and I survive. Why would I risk that? I believe in assassination, not suicide.
Kim Jong-un
Some people say that suicide is a sin, but I have never believed that. I say it’s God’s way of calling certain folks home early. It’s much nicer than an awful accident, where the rest of us are left wondering if the person really wanted to go.
Faith Sullivan
I think a cyber-terrorism attack is overblown, though the threat exists. I think al Qaeda and other groups are more interested in symbolic terrorism, like what they did to the World Trade Center – suicide bombers or something that really has an effect and is meaningful to people.
Kevin Mitnick
Those who truly love us will never knowingly ask us to be other than we are
Mark Nepo

Mahatma Gandhi
Would Hamlet have felt the delicious fascination of suicide if he hadn’t had an audience, and lines to speak?

Mark Twain
He said you were the only one who was bitter about S.’s suicide and the only one who really forgave him for it. The rest of us, he said, were outwardly unbitter and inwardly unforgiving.
J. D. Salinger
Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
Johnny Depp

Nia Sanchez
I really don’t understand how parents can talk about gay couples’ PDA as a problem or a transgender teen’s suicide and not the fact that too many of our kids are being murdered in the schools and on the streets.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi
I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold.

Josh Billings

Graham Moore
Second-generation Muslims who have lived all their lives in Europe are turning up among the suicide bombers and terrorists.
Pat Buchanan
Suicide is like the ejector button in the cockpit of an F-15. If life goes into a permanent tail spin, it’s nice to know the option is there.

My mother’s suicide attempts were a way to release anxiety and get attention. Some of the attempts were drug reactions she didn’t even remember later on.
Lorna Luft
Most people get suicide, I guess; most people, even if it’s hidden deep down inside somewhere, can remember a time in their lives when they thought about whether they really wanted to wake up the next day. Wanting to die seems like it might be a part of being alive.
Nick Hornby
Suicide is not abominable because God prohibits it; God prohibits it because it is abominable.
Immanuel Kant
I just couldn’t go back to Suddenly Susan after David Strickland’s suicide. I didn’t see how we could make the show light and funny any more.

Richard Dawkins
The suicide bombers who struck London on 7 July 2005 killed 52 innocent people and wounded hundreds more. All of them must live with their memories. And the rest of us will always remember where we were when we heard that London had been hit by the worst terrorist attack in its history.

Brian K. Vaughan
We must not pluck death from the Maker’s hand.
Philip James Bailey
I’m not disparaging suicides when I call them weak, I’m pointing out that anybody who would consider doing a thing like that needs help. I don’t think a normal, mentally healthy person commits suicide.
Jesse Ventura
Knowing where you come from is one thing, but it’s suicide to stay there.
Dennis Covington
[On suicide:] It’s the only cause of death that can be used as a noun to describe the dead person. If you die of cancer you are not called ‘a cancer.’ If someone else shoots you, you are not referred to as ‘a murder.’ But if you shoot yourself, you are labeled as a suicide. Your death becomes your definition.
Joan Wickersham
A notorious inability to express emotions makes human beings the only animals capable of suicide.
Alain de Botton
Although the time of death is approaching me, I am not afraid of dying and going to Hell or (what would be considerably worse) going to the popularized version of Heaven. I expect death to be nothingness and, for removing me from all possible fears of death, I am thankful to atheism.
Isaac Asimov
I just want to be happy. And I find that people that have the least in life are sometimes the happiest. And I don’t have the least in life. I have enough in life. And I won’t sacrifice my health for that.
John Moffitt
Happiness is the death of the ego. If you want to remain a separate entity from existence as almost everybody is trying to do, you will be afraid of being blissful, cheerful. You will feel guilty in being blissful. You will feel suicidal because you are committing suicide on the psychological level, on the level of the ego.

Peter O’Toole
Anguish of mind has driven thousands to suicide; anguish of body, none. This proves that the health of the mind is of far more consequence to our happiness than the health of the body, although both are deserving of much more attention than either of them receive.
Charles Caleb Colton
I think we have to understand that when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it will lead to cultural suicide. We should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood or associated groups to be influencing our national security strategy.
Allen West

I’ll be mellow when I’m dead.
Al Yankovic
Suicide is no solution. Keep fighting.

Jackie Mason
Neurotics dream of a good life, or a great suicide note.

In my writing with Extreme, there are heavy themes. The cover photo has me with a gun to my neck. I am not advocating suicide. I am taking the philosophy that man is the measure of his own fate.
Gary Cherone
I have a history with domestic violence myself. I have toddlers in my home, and I’m a gun owner. And, as a veteran, I’m a member of a community that has a very high suicide rate. So all of those things have touched my life.
MJ Hegar
We have nothing to fear but fear itself.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Ayn Rand

Anais Nin
Why dost thou complain of this world? It detains thee not; thy own cowardice is the cause, if thou livest in pain.
Michel de Montaigne
Most of the suicide hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, a place not lacking in wealth. But due to rapid population growth, the wealth per capita has fallen by about half in a generation.
Keith Henson
When you’re thirty-five, you can’t take as much booze … and I always got a little violent on drink…So it was kind of self-destructive suicide side of me, which is resolving itself for the better, I believe, because I never enjoyed it.
John Lennon
A manifesto, a diary, a crumpled suicide note, and a still relevant love letter.
Art Spiegelman
God gives us love! Something to love He lends us; but when love is grown To ripeness, that on which it throve Falls off, and love is left alone: This is the curse of time.

Your values blurred, your hearts impure
And your past life a ruined church–
But let your poison be your cure.

Barry Sonnenfeld
If I had no sense of humor I should long ago have committed suicide.
Mahatma Gandhi
In adolescence, I hated life and was continually on the verge of suicide, from which, however, I was restrained by the desire to know more mathematics. Now, on the contrary, I enjoy life; I might almost say that with every year that passes I enjoy it more.
Bertrand Russell
ObamaCare is not a ‘trainwreck,’ it is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate, so we agree under duress to accept big government.
Wayne Allyn Root
Where life had no value, death, sometimes, had its price. That is why the bounty killers appeared.

Leo Tolstoy
I would rather be a serf in a poor man’s house and be above ground than reign among the dead.
I’ve played everything but the harp.
Lionel Barrymore

Bob Rae
Man has tried his suicide with bigotry and hate, but in the end he’ll kill himself with nothing but his waste.
Roger McGuinn
I wanted to die, then. I wanted to destroy the body I was trapped in, become what she was, no matter what it took. No matter how much mutilation or pain. But he looked away, at me. He pulled my face down and pressed my lips against his like he was almost trying to suffocate us both.
Francesca Lia Block
The man committing suicide controls the moment of his death by executing a back flip.

Sylvia Plath

I look upon indolence as a sort of suicide.
Lord Chesterfield
If a doctor assists you in your suicide, it is called manslaughter, while if a tobacco company does, it is called commerce.

Pollyanna McIntosh
Incarcerating people for their [drug] consumption choices has the consistency of arresting a survivor of suicide for attempted murder.

Rush Limbaugh
Everything…affects everything
Jay Asher
The woman is perfected. Her dead Body wears the smile of accomplishment.

Christopher Hitchens

A simile committing suicide is always a depressing spectacle.
Oscar Wilde
I saw Suicide in ’74 and it was pretty horrifying.
Robert Quine
Suicide is a fundamental human right. This does not mean that it is desirable. It only means that society does not have the moral right to interfere, by force, with a persons decision to commit this act. The result is a far-reaching infantilization and dehumanization of the suicidal person.
Thomas Szasz
When someone isn’t ready we must not try to force them out. People are being bullied and committing suicide because they’re gay and it’s horrible.
Ricky Martin
Sun, I come to see you for the last time.
Jean Racine
I don’t mind pointing out some of the failings of old age, because we are all headed in that direction, unless of course we take our own lives before we become a burden. I’m not advocating suicide, oh wait, I guess I am.

There’re people all over the world that have access to Suicide Silence because of the internet and everyone that listens to you has a better chance to paying to see you play.

Brendon Small
Early on, if I was alone two three nights in a row, I’d start writing poems about suicide.
Jack Nicholson
I’m a small-time white kid trying to represent hip-hop. If a hip-hop artist comes up and beats me in a battle, who did they beat? A small-town white kid who ain’t never been an MC, who ain’t never done nothing. Now if an MC comes to battle and they get beat by a small-town white boy, that’s MC suicide.
John Cena
The day is not far distant when humanity will realize that biologically it is faced with a choice between suicide and adoration.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
He must not merely cling to life, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape. He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape. He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
It’s better to have a gay life of it than to commit suicide.
Vincent Van Gogh

The language of love letters is the same as suicide notes.
Courtney Love
It is dull enough to confuse the eye in following, pronounced enough to constantly irritate and provoke study, and when you follow the lame uncertain curves for a little distance they suddenly commit suicide—plunge off at outrageous angles, destroy themselves in unheard of contradictions.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
While his history of depression is compatible with suicide… and the location and direction of the stab wounds are consistent with self-infliction, several aspects of the circumstances (as they are known at this time) are atypical of suicide and raise the possibility of homicide.
Elliott Smith
I probably could have gone in depth about a lot of things, but then the album would’ve been longer. You can’t have a short album when you’re talking about suicide and cocaine. That’s not going to be a short album.

Tom Spanbauer
A large part of the problem, is that young people are being born into the world and growing up without much hope. And so, they become murderers, they become suicide bombers.
Arthur Hertzberg
The suicide bombers who struck London on 7 July 2005 killed 52 innocent people and wounded hundreds more. All of them must live with their memories. And the rest of us will always remember where we were when we heard that London had been hit by the worst terrorist attack in its history.
Pauline Neville-Jones, Baroness Neville-Jones
Each victim of suicide gives his act a personal stamp which expresses his temperament, the special conditions in which he is involved, and which, consequently, cannot be explained by the social and general causes of the phenomenon.

Woody Allen
There are always suicides among people who are unable to say what they mean.
John Irving
Why not make an end of it all?… My life is a succession of griefs and bitter feelings…. What is death?… A very small matter,when all is said; only a fool would be concerned about it.
I have at times tried to imagine the despair which leads to suicide, attempted to conjure up the slew and slop of darkness in which only death appears as a pinprick of light: in other words, the exact opposite of the normal condition of life.
Julian Barnes
Pretty soon, the only doubt in my mind was the precise time and method of committing suicide. The only alternative I could see was an eternity of hell for the rest of my life in a mental hospital, and I was going to use my last ounce of free choice and choose a quick clean ending.
Sylvia Plath
To write poetry and to commit suicide, apparently so contradictory, had really been the same, attempts at escape.
John Fowles

Joel Sternfeld
Suicide is a real threat to health.
Virginia Bottomley
When you wake up in the morning and nothing hurts, you can be sure you’re dead.

Jeffrey Kluger
There is a certain right by which we many deprive a man of life, but none by which we may deprive him of death; this is mere cruelty.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!
Hunter S. Thompson
We have suicide bombers blowing up buses in Israel and very real anti-Semitism on the march in Europe, but the TV networks located the worldwide danger zone for Jews as the space between Mel Gibson’s ears.

Charlie Hunnam
If you push through the hard days you can get through anything.
Gabby Douglas
I think my music’s more disturbing than Tupac’s – or at least I thought some of the themes of ‘The Downward Spiral’ were more disturbing on a deeper level – you know, issues about suicide and hating yourself and God and people and everything else.
Trent Reznor
People commit suicide through weakness, not through strength.
T. H. White
I’ve lost, but I also gained a lot. I’m a creative person, and no one can take that away from me. I’ve been told I committed professional suicide because it was the only escape from the terrible pressures I was facing. What do you think?
John Galliano
Virgin suicide What was that she cried? No use in stayin’ On this holocaust ride She gave me her cherry She’s my virgin suicide
Jeffrey Eugenides
Suicide does not end the chances of life getting worse. Suicide eliminates the possibility of it ever getting better.
Vic Fuentes

Wendy O. Williams
In my opinion, villains are so much more interesting than heroes. So ‘Suicide Squad’ is just like, wow, so damn awesome.
Harley Quinn Smith
Suicide thwarts the plan of the entity which sends out the personality. Fortunately, the entity is far beyond the reach of man’s destructive tendencies.
Manly Hall
Every seventeen minutes in America, someone commits suicide. Mostly, I have been impressed by how little value our society puts on saving the lives of those who are in such despair as to want to end them. It is a societal illusion that suicide is rare. It is not.
Kay Redfield Jamison
My thinking tends to be libertarian. That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm-as in abortion, sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use, or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as matters of free choice in a representative democracy.
Camille Paglia
Those struggling with life-threatening thoughts do not feel connected to others. They feel all alone- even alone in the midst of a crowd.
June Hunt
Wittgenstein imagined that the philosopher was like a therapist whose task was to put problems finally to rest, and to cure us ofbeing bewitched by them. So we are told to stop, to shut off lines of inquiry, not to find things puzzling nor to seek explanations. This is intellectual suicide.
Simon Blackburn
Gay teenagers are four times as likely to attempt suicide as straight ones. I wish they knew that there’s nothing wrong with them; that they are just a different shade of normal.
Jodi Picoult
Diderot took the ground that, if orthodox religion be true Christ was guilty of suicide. Having the power to defend himself he should have used it.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Then is it sin to rush into the secret house of death. Ere death dare come to us?
William Shakespeare
Suicide is not something I owe you or yours.
Paolo Bacigalupi
You are certainly wrong to compare suicide … with great accomplishments, since it cannot be considered as anything but a weakness. After all, it is easier to die than to endure a harrowing life with fortitude.

Joanne Harris
There can be no tolerance in a law-system for another religion. Toleration is a device used to introduce a new law-system as a prelude to a new intolerance… Every law-system must maintain its existence by hostility to every other law-system and to alien religious foundations or else it commits suicide
R.J. Rushdoony
Suicide and antipathy to fires in a bedroom seem to be among the national characteristics. Perhaps the same moral cause may originate both.

I’m very interested in how idealistic young people can get caught up in all sorts of systems of extreme belief, you know, whether it’s cults or whether it’s suicide bombers.
Emma Donoghue
Eyes Wide Open’ took shape from two real life events straight from my own past. One was the sad suicide of my young nephew, a troubled kid, who was found at the bottom of a landmark cliff in central California. The second was a chance encounter forty years ago with none other than, ahem, Charles Manson!
Andrew Gross
I would feel real trapped in this life if I didn’t know I could commit suicide at any time.
Hunter S. Thompson
No matter what anyone says, suicide takes guts. It’s for heroes and martyrs, truly vainglorious men. Archie was none of these. He was a man whose significance in the Greater Scheme of Things could be figured along familiar ratios: Pebble : Beach Raindrop : Ocean Needle : Haystack
Zadie Smith
One said of suicide, As long as one has brains one should not blow them out. And another answered, But when one has ceased to have them, too often one cannot.
F. H. Bradley
Hitler gave us orders – and we believed in him. Then he commits suicide and leaves us to bear the guilt. He should have remained alive to bear his share.
Wilhelm Keitel
suicide is absolute, and if you think you will survive by hiding who you really are, you are sadly misled: there is no such thing as partial or intermittent suicide. You can only survive if you – who you really are – do survive.
June Jordan
Homicide, /n./ The slaying of one human by another. There are four kinds of homicide: felonious, excusable, justifiable, and praiseworthy, but it makes no great difference to the person slain whether he died by one kind or another – the classification is for the advantage of the lawyers.
Ambrose Bierce
ID cards do not tell the police who is about to commit a suicide bombing.

Michael Pitt
The will of the world is always a will to death, a will to suicide. We must not accept this suicide, and we must so act that it cannot take place.
Jacques Ellul
I think people don’t understand how intimately tied suicide is to mental illness, particularly to depressive illness and bipolar illness.
Kay Redfield Jamison
I’ve seen schizophrenics who are so hopeless, you couldn’t cheer them, and their lives are miserable and they end up as suicides. That’s not right.
Jack Kevorkian
I think we are in the midst of this period where we are committing this suicide on the planet and everybody is just using up all of our natural resources like a bunch of insane people. That’s what I worry about more than I worry about jazz.
Sonny Rollins
Economic and health statistics, as well as police-violence statistics, shed light on the pressures on American Indian communities and individuals: Indian youths have the highest suicide rate of any United States ethnic group.

Chili, spice of red Thursday, which is the day of reckoning. Day which invites us to pick up the sack of our existence and shake it inside out. Day of suicide, day of murder.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide. Every influx of atheism, of skepticism, is thus made useful as a mercury pill assaulting and removing a diseased religion, and making way for truth.

Every man has the right to risk his own life in order to preserve it. Has it ever been said that a man who throws himself out the window to escape from a fire is guilty of suicide?
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The way the terrorist is trained to operate, especially the suicide terrorists, makes punishment and the threat of punishment far less valuable to those who would prevent the crime.

Winifred Holtby

Peter Cook
If you go to Heaven without being naturally qualified for it you will not enjoy yourself there.
George Bernard Shaw
I’ve always been fascinated by the idea that there’s no such thing as evil; it’s all in your point of view. To one group a suicide bomber is the antichrist and to one he’s a hero.

Scott Frank
When my wife passed, I stopped doing interviews and I stopped doing meet-and-greets, mostly because I sort of became this suicide ambassador. Everybody wanted to tell me their story.
Gary Allan
We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.
Franz Kafka
It is universally accepted that an admission of atheism would be instant political suicide for any (U.S.) presidential candidate.

There was very little suicide among the men of the North, because every man considered it his duty to get killed, not to kill himself; and to kill himself would have seemed cowardly, as implying fear of being killed by others

Antonin Artaud
Most societies die of suicide, not attack.
Rush Limbaugh
Guns are always the best method for a private suicide. They are more stylish looking than single-edged razor blades and natural gas has got so expensive. Drugs are too chancy. You might miscalculate the dosage and just have a good time.
P. J. O’Rourke
Women attempt suicide more often because they want to become the priority of those they love rather than always prioritizing them.
Warren Farrell
Any man who criticizes my suicide and passes judgment on me with an expression of superiority, declaring (without offering the least help) that I should have gone on living my full complement of days, is assuredly a prodigy among men quite capable of tranquilly urging the Emperor to open a fruit shop.
Osamu Dazai
There are few situations in life that cannot be resolved promptly, and to the satisfaction of all concerned, by either suicide, a bag of gold, or thrusting a despised antagonist over a precipice on a dark night
Ernest Bramah
Suicide is kinda dumb to me. If I wanna kill myself I will. It’s not hard to die, I could do it like right now. But why is everybody pretending like everything’s ok, Everything’s not ok. We are more connected than we’ve ever been, But I feel more alone than I’ve ever been.
Donald Glover
The reactionary suicide is ‘wise,’ and the revolutionary suicide is a ‘fool,’ a fool for the revolution in the way Paul meant when he spoke of being a ‘fool for Christ,’ That foolishness can move mountains of oppression; it is our great leap and our commitment to the dead and the unborn.

Rayvon Owen
The quick lesson that I learned is that none of the fame part is really real.
Carly Rae Jepsen
Our strength lies in spiritual concepts. It lies in public sensitivities to evil. Our greatest danger is not from invading armies. Our dangers are that we may commit suicide from within by complaisance with evil, or by public tolerance of scandalous behavior.

Stephen Leacock
If pro-abortionists want to commit intellectual suicide and deny scientific facts, that’s their problem. But there’s no reason a civilized society should fund their anti-scientific outlook – or accept its inhumane consequences.

Erwin Stengel
I love the ’70s, I’m very into that right now. The long Chloe dresses, very Virgin Suicides.
Elle Fanning
I thought I was fooling people. But it’s the old thing of ‘they say vodka doesn’t smell’. No, not until you sweat. And you just lie and lie and you think ‘I can deal with this’. And then you finally go, ‘No you can’t’. And then you give up.
Robin Williams

Stanislaw Lem
Postmodernism entices us with the siren call of liberation and creativity, but it may be an invitation to intellectual and moral suicide.
Gertrude Himmelfarb
Rationally, I knew these fears were ridiculous. There were no signs, unfortunately, and I would never blame anyone for another person’s suicide. But if everyone felt that way, there wouldn’t be this cruel stigma, would there?
Jennifer Ashton
Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder.
Arnold J. Toynbee
…inside every old person is a young person wondering what happened.
Terry Pratchett
Life without meaning
cannot be borne.
We find a mission

of purpose in life,
we have no vision,
we live in strife,
-or let blood fall
on a suicide knife.
Dean Koontz

Marlo Thomas
It’s just I might get distracted, and I get lost kind of easily, and sometimes I have really bad days…when, you know, I just want to hide or scream or bleed or something, and…all that…

Barry Sheene
Hey man, did you see that? His body hit the street with such a beautiful thud.

One of my favorite games when I was a kid was ‘murder/suicide’. Dad would show us a photo and ask us: ‘Is it a murder or a suicide ?’
Colleen Doran
A woman who ran a feminist organization in India told me one thing that stands out for her is bride burning. If a groom’s family doesn’t like an arranged marriage and they want to get rid of the woman, in-laws may set fire to her in the kitchen, or she may commit suicide in a “kitchen fire”.
Barbara Crossette
Actually, it was only part of myself I wanted to kill: the part that wanted to kill herself, that dragged me into the suicide debate and made every window, kitchen implement, and subway station a rehearsal for tragedy.

Suicide was such a formative band for me, so influential in the development of my taste. They’re one of those bands that operated in absolute isolation for so long that they developed a completely unique world view.
Steve Albini
If you are of the opinion that the contemplation of suicide is sufficient evidence of a poetic nature, do not forget that actions speak louder than words.

Spirituality is committing suicide. Consciousness is attempting to will itself out of existence.
Jaron Lanier
What kills a person at twenty-five? Leukemia. An accident. But George knows the better odds are that someone who passes at that age dies of unhappiness. Drug overdose. Suicide. Reckless behavior.
Scott Turow
Suicides? Heart attacks? The papers didn’t seem interested. The world was full of ways to die, too many to cover. Newsworthy deaths had to be exceptional. Most people go unobserved.
Haruki Murakami
You have endless ways you can commit suicide without dying dying.
Chuck Palahniuk
We need to be creative with young people. If they have no opportunities, they will get into drugs and be vulnerable to suicide.

Travis Bradberry
… I vowed that I would always respect the right of an individual to kill himself. Whether suicide was a moral or immoral act I no longer felt sure, but of the dignity of its intransigence I was convinced.
Phillip Lopate
I learned that I suffered from bipolar II disorder, a less serious variant of bipolar I, which was once known as manic depression.

Ayelet Waldman
I think it will be a miracle if I don’t someday end up killing myself.
Anne Sexton
Goodbye, my friend, goodbye

Let’s have no sadness – furrowed brow.
There’s nothing new in dying now
Though living is no newer.
Sergei Yesenin
So you grow up with those messages, “You’re a failure, you embarrass me, that’s why I dress you in dark colors etc.” or even when parents commit suicide, the child may think they were a failure as a child causing that. The majority of those people who weren’t loved turn to drugs and alcohol and suicide.
Bernie Siegel
Society makes suicide so romantic. I mean, you watch these TV movies about teen suicide and you want to jump in front of a bus. Because your biggest fantasy is your own funeral. No one will admit to it, but it’s true.
Winona Ryder
The suicide arrives at the conclusion that what he is seeking does not exist; the seeker concludes that what he has not yet looked in the right place.
Paul Watzlawick
Now there are reports that Osama bin Laden would like to commit suicide on television. This is the kind of lead-in I have been praying for every since I came to CBS. Bin Laden is planning a televised suicide or, as I call it, hosting the Academy Awards.
David Letterman
Suicide. A sideways word, a word that people whisper and mutter and cough: a word that must be squeezed out behind cupped palms or murmured behind closed doors. It was only in dreams that I heard the word shouted, screamed.
Lauren Oliver
I shall add that only he who has decided to commit suicide can start a nuclear war in the hope of emerging a victor from it. No matter what the attacker might possess, no matter what method of unleashing nuclear war he chooses, he will not attain his aims. Retribution will inevitably ensue.
Leonid Brezhnev
Often really what you need is someone who will believe in you, who will encourage you to believe in yourself.

George Granville, 1st Baron Lansdowne
. . . The books we need are the kind that act upon us like a misfortune, that make us suffer like the death of someone we love more than ourselves, that make us feel as though we were on the verge of suicide, or lost in a forest remote from all human habitation-a book should serve as an axe for the frozen sea within us.
Franz Kafka
I remained basically anonymous for almost 17 years. I, in those 17 years, I tried to commit suicide a couple of times. I was very ashamed of what I had done, and I was looking for forgiveness not only from God but from myself.

Josey Wales
It would be simply suicidal to French Canadians to form a party by themselves.
Wilfrid Laurier
The best I can say is that it’s better for me to write about despair and darkness than to be incapable of getting off the sofa. It’s better to write about suicide than to contemplate it too heavily.
Paul Westerberg
Because for most of us, suicide is a moment we’ll never choose. It’s only for people like Lexy, who know they might choose eventually, who believe they have a choice to make.
Carolyn Parkhurst
I believe in equality for everyone. I believe everyone should have the right to love and commit to whomever they want. […] All I know is that in God’s eyes we are all the same. I just wish we could see through the eyes of God more often.

Albert Camus
Suicide is an extreme vote of no confidence in a society that doesn’t work.

In my view, suicide is not really a wish for life to end.’ What is it then?’ It is the only way a powerless person can find to make everybody else look away from his shame. The wish is not to die, but to hide.
Orson Scott Card
I can say, and I am responsible for what I am saying, that [American troops] have started to commit suicide under the walls of Baghdad. We will encourage them to commit more suicides quickly.

Sherrilyn Kenyon
What really surprised me was that more than half of all deaths by gunshot are suicides, more than 20,000 a year, about 58 a day.

Robert Crumb
Maniacal suicide. —This is due to hallucinations or delirious conceptions. The patient kills himself to escape from an imaginary danger or disgrace, or to obey a mysterious order from on high, etc.
Emile Durkheim
It’d be cool to chipmunk-ize “The Virgin Suicides” soundtrack. All this ethereal French music, I think that would be unique to listen to.
Matthew Gray Gubler
I try to put myself in others’ shoes: How does any country give up any sovereignty and expect to survive as a government? I don’t think that any Philippine president, or any leader for that matter, can afford to give up any portion of territorial sovereignty. That would be political suicide.
Benigno Aquino III
I am perfectly confident that I could never adequately convey to any other human being the precise reasons why I continue to refrain from suicide – the reasons, that is, why I still find existence enough of a compensation to atone for its dominantly burthensome quality.
H. P. Lovecraft
Someone asked me what three things I would save if my house was on fire. I said my cat, my salamander and one of the twins.
Ricky Gervais
…occasionally I wished I could walk through a picture window and have the sharp, broken shards slash me to ribbons so I would finally look like I felt.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
Simple. I got very bored and depressed, so I went and plugged myself in to its external computer feed.

Michel de Montaigne
Every year, an average of 9,200 Americans are murdered by handguns, according to Department of Justice statistics. This does not include suicides or the tens of thousands of robberies, rapes and assaults committed with handguns. This level of violence must be stopped.

Isaiah Austin
My fortune somewhat resembled that of a person who should entertain an idea of committing suicide, and, altogether beyond his hopes, meet with the good hap to be murdered.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Forgiving is not forgetting; its actually remembering–remembering and not using your right to hit back. Its a second chance for a new beginning. And the remembering part is particularly important. Especially if you dont want to repeat what happened.
Desmond Tutu
Revolutionary suicide does not mean that I and my comrades have a death wish; it means just the opposite.
Huey Newton
Look may be that everything is right, it is always best to have an inspection before marching. To forget a screw, if you have a loose one, and only discover your loss when you are miles from home and the view before you is “perfect”, is to promote, possibly suicide, certainly profanity.
Henry Peach Robinson
Ability will never catch up with the demand for it.
We might be on the brink of an apocalypse if, instead of poor people with suicide bombs killing middle class guys, middle-class people with suicide bombs started killing rich guys.
Bruce Sterling
When I wrote The Virgin Suicides, I gave myself very strict rules about the narrative voice: the boys would only be able to report what they had seen or found or what had been told to them.
Jeffrey Eugenides
Everyone can relate to depression. It touches so many. Suicide is the leading cause of death among teenagers. Statistics show that women suffer from depression more than men, but that is probably because men don’t report it as much.
Ashley Judd
Suicides pay the world a bad compliment. Indeed, it may so happen that the world has been beforehand with them in incivility. Granted. Even then the retaliation is at their own expense.
Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann

Scott Adams
I’ll commit suicide before I vote on a clean minimum-wage bill.
John Boehner
The paintings by dead men who were poor most of their lives are the most valuable pieces in my collection. And if an artist wants to really jack up the prices of his creations, may I suggest this: suicide.
Kurt Vonnegut

He is not valiant that dares lie; but he that boldly bears calamity.
Philip Massinger
You want to go easy on the suicide stuff – first thing you know, you’ll ruin your health.
Robert Benchley
Shortly after Eva’s [Braun] second attempt at suicide, [Adolf] Hitler moved quickly, as we discussed already. I can’t tell you how difficult it was for her living at the apartment of our parents. I wasn’t happy there, but Eva was miserable, I can tell you that.
Gretl Braun
Eric called Al’s suicide brave, and he was wrong. My mother’s death was brave. I remember how calm she was, how determined. It isn’t just brave that she died for me; it is brave that she did it without announcing it, without hesitation, and without appearing to consider another option.
Veronica Roth
I look at the tattoo inside my left wrist. It’s my brother’s name, he committed suicide two years ago. Just before the second anniversary of his death, I tattooed his name. I miss him, of course, and I decided I would live for me, and for him.
Pom Klementieff
But we are all insane, anyway … The suicides seem to be the only sane people.

An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought in it.
Mark Twain
There are circumstances in which suicide presents a viable option; a workable alternative; the only sensible solution.

Euthanasia and assisted suicide are never acceptable acts of mercy. They always gravely exploit the suffering and desperate, extinguishing life in the name of the ‘quality of life’ itself.
Pope John Paul II
What else is wrong with ‘suicide’ bombing? Legally, less than what one might believe. While it may or may not be good strategy, it appears to be permissable under international law.
Enver Masud

Ezra Pound
When disease took my legs, I eventually realized I didn’t need them to lead a full, empowering life; Only True Disability Is in Our Mind.

Robert Charles Wilson
It is not worth the bother of killing yourself, since you always kill yourself too late.
Emile M. Cioran
We look for the sermon in the suicide, for the social or moral lesson in the murder of five. We interpret what we see, select the most workable of the multiple choices.
Joan Didion
Stories about sensitive issues like sex, drugs or sexual assault, suicide and teen drinking, are often censored because people just don’t want to talk about those things.

Jay Asher
The common workshop goal is revision, not suicide.
Hilma Wolitzer
Suicide terrorism stops when we stop intervening abroad.
Ron Paul
The flip side of suicide is that it leaves a lingering question in the minds of the people who survived. Its like a cancer thats metastasized. The suicide is the cancer and the metastasis is all these people saying, Why? Why? Why?
Abraham Verghese
[Film Loulou] is about Loulou, a ghost from the 1920s. She was a flapper and she was a dancer, had kind of a free lifestyle, then she ended up marrying a man who wanted to kind of keep her in the house and control her environment a little bit more and so she committed suicide.

Harry S Truman
It was a spring day, the sort that gives people hope: all soft winds and delicate smells of warm earth. Suicide weather.

Leora Tanenbaum
There is no moral difference between a stealth bomber and a suicide bomber. Both kill innocent people for political reasons.
Tony Benn
It would be suicide in the American academy to show too early an interest beyond your doctoral specialization: charges of everything from charlatanry to ambition would be levied and tenure denied. I’ve seen this first-hand.
Tony Judt
A suicide kills two people, that’s what it’s for!
Arthur Miller
As soon as one does not kill oneself, one must keep silent about life.
Albert Camus
What I really felt like, though, was committing suicide. I felt like jumping out the window. I probably would’ve done it, too, if I’d been sure somebody’d cover me up as soon as I landed. I didn’t want a bunch of stupid rubbernecks looking at me when I was all gory.
J. D. Salinger
I’d fallen in love with a woman but she broke up with me and I was devastated. Six months later, I went into a suicidal depression from the break-up of the relationship, but I resolved to not do what my friends had done. And so I reached out for help

I’m Catholic and I can’t commit suicide, but I plan to drink myself to death.

Albert Camus
Against self-slaughter There is a prohibition so divine That cravens my weak hand.
William Shakespeare
In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Abraham Lincoln
For if it is not lawful to take the law into our own hands and slay even a guilty person, whose death no public sentence has warranted. Then certainly he who kills himself is a homicide, and so much the guiltier of his own death as he was more innocent of that offence for which he doomed himself to die.
Saint Augustine
I don’t persuade to suicide.
Jack Kevorkian
You know, the Constitution – there’s nothing like it. But it doesn’t necessarily give us the right to commit suicide as a country, OK? … We’re not gonna allow the people to come into our country. … And if people want to come in, there’s gonna be “Extreme vetting.”
Donald Trump
When the bad stuff was really intense in my life, it was really what you would call writer’s block. Your facility is just not as good because you feel so bad. I’ve heard of people right on the verge of suicide coming up with some of their best work. I wish I could think of an example, other than Van Gogh, perhaps!
John Fogerty
I think you should live your life so that the maximum number of people will attend your funeral.
Scott Adams
There have been a lot of murders and suicides in my family; it’s like the primary cause of death. I wonder if there’s a certain energy that attracts that.
Rose McGowan
I’m for the death penalty, I’m pro-abortion, I’m pro-assisted suicide, I’m pro-regular suicide. Anything that’ll get the traffic moving.
Bill Maher
Caffeine gives me hope. Sometimes, when I brew my wicked strong Irish black tea just perfect, about halfway through the mug I feel a clear and overwhelming feeling of optimism. It didn’t surprise me when a study a few years ago implied that suicide was much less likely among coffee and tea drinkers.
John Vanderslice
Let’s raise our glass and let the hammer fly, yeah, this is the long good-bye.
Bruce Springsteen
… many a suicide might be averted if the person contemplating it could find the proper assistance when such a crisis impends.
Clifford Whittingham Beers
There have been times when I felt suicidal and I would stop my head from going in that direction of negativity because I thought there’d be something I’d miss that was funny in the future. If there’s a chance I’m going to laugh tomorrow then want to live to experience that.

Stephen Colbert

Albert Camus
You don’t have to be Sigmund Freud to surmise that war has a perverse appeal for the human race, nor is the attraction limited to religious fanatics committing mass murder and suicide for the greater glory of God.
Ellen Willis
A society that does not defend itself is doomed. A system that remains passive in the face of attack deserves to go under. Those unwilling to defend freedom will become unfree. To stand idly by is to commit suicide.
Brian Crozier
Most unmarried Somali girls who got pregnant committed suicide. I knew of one girl in Mogadishu who poured a can of gasoline over herself in the living room, with everyone there, and burned herself alive.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The central fact is that overwhelmingly suicide-terrorist attacks are not driven by religion as much as they are by a clear strategic objective.
Robert Pape

Arnold Bennett
Anything or anyone that asks you to be other than yourself is not holy, but is trying only to fill its own need.

Immitation is suicide.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want to tell them, “Chip, Kim, there is no way to suicide-proof a person.

J. K. Rowling
It’s not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you.

Great deeds are usually wrought at great risks.
We need to look at how we can better fortify our force protection at military installations. But also, how can we deal with these mental health issues with our returning veterans? And our suicide rate in the military is twice as high as the average population.
Michael McCaul
The awareness of the damage done by severe mental illness—to the individual himself and to others—and fears that it may return again play a decisive role in many suicides
Kay Redfield Jamison
The obsession with suicide is characteristic of the man who can neither live nor die, and whose attention never swerves from this double impossibility.
Emil Cioran
A suicide is both a rebuke to the living and a puzzle that defies them to solve it. Like a poem, suicide is finished and refuses to answer questions as to its final cause.
Margaret Atwood
America remained a land of promise for lovers of freedom. Even Byron, at a moment when he was disgusted with Napoleon for not committing suicide, wrote an eloquent stanza in praise of Washington.
Bertrand Russell
No sane society chooses to commit national suicide.
John F. Kennedy
What Strauss is going through drives you nuts. If you care about your batting – which I’m sure he does – he will feel like jumping off a bridge and committing suicide
Bill Vaughan
My husband is so cheap. On Christmas Eve, he fires one shot and tells the kids Santa committed suicide.
Phyllis Diller
Even nowadays a man can’t step up and kill a woman without feeling just a bit unchivalrous.
Robert Benchley
I felt myself in a solitude so frightful that I contemplated suicide. What held me back was the idea that no one, absolutely no one, would be moved by my death, that I would be even more alone in death than in life.
Jean-Paul Sartre
…it is only death which is hopeless.
Maria Jane McIntosh
There is a difference between a person who is dying and a person who is suicidal. I do not want to die. I am dying.
Brittany Maynard
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent of how I react to it. And so it is with you. we are in charge of our attitudes.
Charles R. Swindoll
It was just a terribly stressful situation and dreary. A few months after [Eva Braun] suicide attempt, [Adolf] Hitler moved us both to the apartment, it was in the summer.
Gretl Braun
When one of my Japanese teacups is broken, I imagine that the real cause was not the careless hand of a maid but the anxieties of the figures inhabiting the curves of that porcelain. Their grim decision to commit suicide doesn’t shock me: they used the maid as one of us might use a gun.
Fernando Pessoa
The stigma of self-inflicted death is for some people a hateful blot that demands erasure at all costs.
William Styron
Officials believe that one of the terrorists was a woman. And there are female suicide bombers. It’s just that their reward in paradise is a little different. Instead of getting 72 virgins, they get 72 guys who just listen.
Bill Maher
Even if this advice to portfolio decision makers to drop dead is good advice, it obviously is not counsel that will be eagerly followed. Few people will commit suicide without a push. And fewer still will pay good money to be told to do what is against human nature and self-interest to do.
Paul Samuelson
If you must commit suicide … always contrive to do it as decorously as possible; the decencies, whether of life or of death, should never be lost sight of.
George Henry Borrow
I feel it’s such a tragic thing [Kurt Cobain’s suicide]. Here is a guy, a young guy, that had everything in his hands. He could have had a great life. He had a wife, he had a child, he had a fantastic career. He was important to a generation. And for him to do that – I didn’t like that. I thought that was just wrong.
Sammy Hagar
Suicide is unspeakable, and to speak it is somehow to bring it into a human, imaginable sphere, even if only in the moment of speaking. The need to tell is both a need to tell oneself and a need to be heard…. Telling and being heard are the first steps toward reconnection.
Victoria Alexander
I like people who can’t die in their bed.
Erri De Luca
Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.
James Burnham
And can a man his own quietus make
with a bare bodkin?
D. H. Lawrence
[I] have fantasies of killing myself and thus being the powerful one not the powerless one.
Anne Sexton
The Palestinians are fighting with human suicide bombers, that’s all they have. The Israelis… they’ve got one of the most powerful military machines in the world. The Palestinians have nothing. So who are the terrorists? I would make a case that both sides are involved in terrorism.
Ted Turner
The first inkling my husband had that I was thinking about suicide was when he checked my blog.
Ayelet Waldman
I have no plants in my house. They won’t live for me. Some of them don’t even wait to die, they commit suicide.
Jerry Seinfeld
Suicide note. “To my friends. My work is done why wait?”
George Eastman
What annoys a person who suicides? The life itself. Boredom. Tiredness that descends on every morning when you look at yourself at the mirror.
Henning Mankell
We’re not going to persuade people in the developing world to go without, but neither can we afford a planet on which everyone lives like an American. Billions more people living in suburbs and driving SUVs to shopping malls is a recipe for planetary suicide. We can’t even afford to continue that way of life ourselves.
Alex Steffen
We have many cases of men committing suicide rather than face their own individuality. I know of no case of a woman who committed suicide because she was gay.
George Weinberg
It’s no surprise to me that intellectuals commit suicide, go mad or die from drink. We feel things more than other people. We know the world is rotten and that chins are ruined by spots.
Sue Townsend
Suicide is a crime of loneliness, and adulated people can be frighteningly alone. Intelligence does not help in these circumstances; brilliance is almost always profoundly isolating.
Andrew Solomon
I blame my mother for nothing, but forgive her for everything.
Mary J. Blige
Praise the Lord, but do me a favor, don’t ever say ‘Stephen Baldwin’ and ‘ministry’ in the same sentence. I make movies, and in Hollywood, that’s career suicide.
Stephen Baldwin
That is what chills your spine when you read an account of a suicide: not the frail corpse hanging from the window bars but what happened inside that heart immediately before.
Simone de Beauvoir
She sleeps alone at last.
Robert Benchley
They tried to get me-I got them first! (suicide note)
Vachel Lindsay
The work in S, M, L, XL was almost suicidal. It required so much effort that our office almost went bankrupt.
Rem Koolhaas
The woman poet must be either a sexless, reclusive eccentric, with nothing to say specifically to women, or a brilliant, tragic, tortured suicide.
Marilyn Hacker
The homosexual community has more acceptance in America than it ever has, and the suicide rate is as high as it’s always been.
Randall Terry
Peace /n/: A rare state which has only existed when a despot has been fearsome or strong enough to impose it. The image of your head on the end of a stick is a strong incentive toward ‘visualizing world peace’.
Boyd Rice
One girl, actually, in the UK — it was a really small show in Wales — a girl came up to me and said that because of one of my songs she was still alive. She’d decided not to commit suicide. It was a really emotional moment.
Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.
Keira Knightley
Stuff up the cracks, turn on the gas, I’m gonna take my life.
Frank Zappa
That particular octopus committed suicide, didn’t he? He stabbed himself with his own beak.
Richard Madeley
Don’t worry Renee, I won’t commit suicide and I won’t burn a thing. Because from now on, for you, I’ll be searching for those moments of always within never. Beauty, in this world.
Muriel Barbery
So welcome ‘Damsels in Distress,’ an exhilarating gift of a comedy about college, the female intellect, the limitless male ego, inventing a new dance, and suicide prevention… This is the world as Stillman sees it, and to luxuriate for two hours in that retro bubble of sparkling wit is a pleasure not to be missed.
Peter Travers
They can rule the world while they can persuade us our pain belongs in some order is death by famine worse than death by suicide, than a life of famine and suicide?
Adrienne Rich
We will not commit suicide because of pressure from the international community. A Palestinian state is not possible at the moment. I would rather fight and try to explain the situation in the Middle East to the world than to agree to steps that harm my country to satisfy the international community.
Ayelet Shaked
Lucretius was passionate, and much more in need of exhortations to prudence than Epicurus was. He committed suicide, and appears to have suffered from periodic insanity – brought on, so some averred, by the pains of love or the unintended effects of a love philtre.
They can rule the world while they can persuade us our pain belongs in some order is death by famine worse than death by suicide, than a life of famine and suicide…?
Adrienne Rich
Suicide is possible, but not probable; hanging, I trust, is even more unlikely; for I hope that, by the time I die, my countrymen will have become civilised enough to abolish capital punishment.
Laurence Housman
Hemingway shot himself. I don’t like a man that takes the short way home.
William Faulkner
Madness is a kind of mental suicide.
Stephen King
And pray where in earth or heaven are there prudent marriages-Might as well talk about prudent suicides.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I think the suicides in my first book came from the idea of growing up in Detroit. If you grow up in a city like that you feel everything is perishing, evanescent and going away very quickly.
Jeffrey Eugenides
I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me.
David Levithan
In New York City, one suicide in ten is attributed to a lack of storage space.
Judith Stone
My great grandmother threw herself in front of a bus. The police tried to say she was committed suicide but the family knew she was just trying to stop civil rights.
Anthony Jeselnik
So smoking is the perfect way to commit suicide without actually dying. I smoke because it’s bad, it’s really simple.
Damien Hirst
Help, I have done it again I have been here many times before Hurt myself again today And the worst part is There’s no-one else to blame.
Sia Furler
I tried to commit suicide one day. It was a very Woody Allen-type suicide. I turned on the gas and left all the windows open.
Elton John
I think suicide is sort of like cancer was 50 years ago. People don’t want to talk about it, they don’t want to know about it. People are frightened of it, and they don’t understand, when actually these issues are medically treatable.
Judy Collins
I smoke blunt to take the pain out and if I wasn’t high I’d probably blow my brains out.
Tupac Shakur
Who would not shudder if he were given the choice of eternal death or life again as a child ? Who would not choose to die ?
Saint Augustine
Online I see people committing ‘social media suicide’ all the time by one of two ways. Firstly by responding to all criticism, meaning you’re never going to find time to complete important milestones of your own, and by responding to things that don’t warrant a response. This lends more credibility by driving traffic.
Tim Ferriss
From the perspective of the one committing suicide, his or her act can be one of the most perverse forms of moral manipulation, as it abandons those left behind to their shame, guilt, and grief. Suicide is something like a metaphysical “I gotcha!” It is often an attempt to kill or wound others.
Stanley Hauerwas
… suicide gets in the air sometimes. Like a cold germ.
Stephen King
Working hard, and being thoughtful, and generous, and smart; it’s a path to a better life.
Ashton Kutcher
Lately, the only thing keeping me from being a serial killer is my distaste for manual labor.
Scott Adams
We know that to wage a nuclear war today, for example, would be a form of suicide; or that to pollute the air or the oceans in order to achieve some short-term benefit would be to destroy the very basis for our survival.
Dalai Lama
I can never drive my car over a bridge without thinking of suicide. I can never look at a lake or an ocean without thinking of suicide.
Charles Bukowski
Suicide is what the death certificate says when one dies of depression.
Peter D. Kramer
I have had a lot of really close friends and family who have been touched by suicide, and I would never want to make light of it.
Lauren Iungerich
I shall have peace, as leafy trees are peaceful when rain bends down the bough; And I shall be more silent and cold hearted than you are now.
Sara Teasdale
The prevalence of suicide, without doubt, is a test of height in civilization; it means that the population is winding up its nervous and intellectual system to the utmost point of tension and that sometimes it snaps.
Havelock Ellis
Whenever the people are for gay marriage or medical marijuana or assisted suicide, suddenly the ‘will of the people’ goes out the window.
Bill Maher
Irrevocable commitment to any religion is not only intellectual suicide; it is positive unfaith because it closes the mind to any new vision of the world. Faith is, above all, openness – an act of trust in the unknown.
Alan Watts
I have friends who’ve tried suicide many times and haven’t succeeded. I myself made an attempt, so I had a connection with that sort of group of people who have tried suicide at one time in their lives.
Judy Collins
I wanted to make good records. But my problem is I’ve got a low boredom threshold, so I wanted it to look and sound different with each album, which is really tantamount to suicide, cause people lose it, they lose it – they say: ‘I like that, and that’s not this.’
Adam Ant
Recovering from the suicide of a loved one, you need all the help you can get, so I very much recommend a meditation program. The whole picture of how to recover from this has to do with body, mind, and spirit. That’s applicable to any kind of depression.
Judy Collins
We decided to speak publicly about suicide because we wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives.
Luke Richardson
People don’t die from suicide, they die from sadness.
Timothy Long
The terrorism of the suicide bomber and the terrorism of aerial bombardment are indeed morally equivalent. To say otherwise (as either side might) is to give one moral superiority over the other, and thus serve to perpetuate the horrors of our time.
Howard Zinn
Death smiles at us all, all a man can do is smile back.
Marcus Aurelius
I look upon indolence as a sort of suicide; for the man is effectually destroyed, though the appetites of the brute may survive.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
I wanted to be wanted and he was very beautiful, kissed with his eyes closed, and only felt good while moving. You could drown in those eyes, I said, so it’s summer, so it’s suicide, so we’re helpless in sleep and struggling at the bottom of the pool.
Richard Siken
A middle-aged woman who looked like someone’s cleaning lady, a shrieking adolescent lunatic and a talkshow host with an orange face… It didn’t add up. Suicide wasn’t invented for people like this. It was invented for people like Virginia Woolf and Nick Drake. And Me. Suicide was supposed to be cool.
Nick Hornby
It is always consoling to think of suicide: in that way one gets through many a bad night.
Friedrich Nietzsche
You can’t drown yourself that simply. All good suicides involve speed and irreversibility, because the body will always move to protect itself against the sicko mind trying to do it in.
Josephine Humphreys
Simply wait, be quiet, still The world will freely offer itself to you.
Franz Kafka
Infantry must move forward to close with the enemy. It must shoot in order to move…. To halt under fire is folly. To halt under fire and not fire back is suicide. Officers must set the example
George S. Patton
In advertising, not to be different is virtual suicide.
Thornton Wilder
suicide is a crime – the only crime that, if successful, guarantees that the perpetrator will not be punished for it. This makes it the most serious crime of all.
Joanne Greenberg
They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice… that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
Arthur Schopenhauer
When suicide hit my family, we learned first-hand that no one is immune from what is now the 10th leading cause of death in the US.
Jennifer Ashton
It is a disturbing conundrum that true free will cannot exist without the possibility of suicide. Then again, it ain’t over ’til it’s over!
Yogi Berra
The reprisal against the suicide bomber does not bring peace. There is a suicide bomber, a reprisal and then a counter-reprisal. And it just goes on and on.
Desmond Tutu
When you commit your life to something and it doesn’t work out, it is a tough place to be. Suicide can be the spiritual reprieve of a faithless person. I knew I could always just end it, and there was solace in that.
Marc Maron
…They think of suicide as a quick route to oblivion, an escape. Far from it. It merely alters a person from one form to another. Nothing can destroy the spirit. Suicide only precipitates a darker continuation of the same conditions from which escape was sought. A condition under circumstances so much more painful.
Richard Matheson
Suicidal violence is not the exclusive property of the Muslim world. Suicide bombings were a tactic of nationalist struggles in 19th-century Europe and Russia, the far east during the second world war and the Vietnam war, and in modern Sri Lanka.
James Buchan
Although one is not inclined to be timid or nervous, it is nevertheless a trifle depressing to receive letters full of expostulation and entreaty: ‘If you are determined to commit suicide, why not come home and do so in a quiet lady-like manner?’
Annie Smith Peck
I open a paperclip and scratch it across the inside of my left wrist. Pitiful. If a suicide attempt is a cry for help, then what is this. A whimper, a peep? I draw little window cracks of blood, etching line after line until it stops hurting.
Laurie Halse Anderson
It is not seen as insane when a fighter, under an attack that will inevitable lead to his death, chooses to take his own life first. In fact, this act has been encouraged for centuries, and is accepted even now as an honorable reason to do the deed. How is it any different when you are under attack by your own mind?
Emilie Autumn
Suicide sometimes proceeds from cowardice, but not always; for cowardice sometimes prevents it; since as many live because they are afraid to die, as die because they are afraid to live.
Charles Caleb Colton
Suicide is the most private and mysterious of acts, inexplicable because the chief actor is never there to explain it.
P. D. James
