suicide note

famous quotes

Here's what some famous people had to say.

Suicide is the most sincere form of self-criticism


I hate myself,
and I want to die

Curt Cobain

It's better to burn out,
Than to fade away.

Neil Young

The ocean doesn't want me today,
But I'll come back tomorrow to play.
The riptide is waging
And the life guard's away
But the ocean doesn't want me today

Tom Waits

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp;
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live;

Dorothy Parker

Just as I shall select my ship when I am about to go on a voyage, or my house when I propose to take a residence, so shall I choose my death when I am about to depart from life.


Death is a punishment to some, to others a gift and to many a favour.


Whereas a prolonged life is not necessarily better, a prolonged death is necessarily worse.


The person who completes suicide dies once. Those left behind die a thousand deaths, trying to relive those terrible moments and understand...


The trick is to keep breathing.


I guess they call it suicide,
but I'm to full
to swallow my pride
I can't stand losing you

The Police

is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well.

Sylvia Plath

Most people, in committing a suicidal act, are just as muddled as when they do anything important under emotional stress. Carefully planned acts of suicide are as rare as carefully planned acts of homicide.

Erwin Stengel

Let them think what they liked, but I didn't mean to drown myself. I meant to swim till I sank, but that's not the same thing.

Joseph Conrad

There is only one prospect worse than being chained to an intolerable existence: The nightmare of a botched attempt to end it.

Arthur Koestler
