Banksy It is said that you die twice. A quotation claimed to Banksy is "one time when you cease breathing and a second time, a little later on, when somebody shouts your name for the last time." A sizable portion of the population still believes that one dies twice. In fact, some people believe it so strongly that they try to avoid this fate by not breathing during sleep.
The expression comes from an urban legend about a man who dies in a car crash. He wakes up alive the next morning and thinks what a nice day it is so he decides to stick around for a while. Later on, his friends call out his name one by one and wonder where he is. Since he hasn't answered, they go to check on him and find him still sitting in his car. They tell him they are worried and ask why he didn't answer when they called out to him. He says he doesn't feel dead and wants to know what all the fuss is about. They tell him that you die once when your heart stops beating and that you die again when your body runs out of oxygen. He insists that he's only died once and not the second time so they let him stay outside until he sees another living person which makes him decide to leave.
People tend to think that you die a second time if you go through something scary but survive it.
"Famous last words" are frequently unscripted statements spoken by the dying person for the first (and, of course, final) time on their deathbed. Also see: Famous Suicide Notes. The phrase comes from the fact that these remarks were often quoted by journalists writing about the subject.
Some examples include: "Dying is easy, comedy is hard"; "I'm not scared to die, I just don't want to be remembered as a dead man."; or simply "Merry Christmas". Some people may choose to add further explanation before they die, such as "My will is in my wallet at home..." Others may leave nothing written behind other than their will.
The most common belief regarding the source of this phrase is that it stems from the observation that people will often write down what they believe to be their last words but then die without actually saying them. However, there is no real evidence to support this idea, and it is more likely that it originates with the simple fact that many people feel compelled to say something profound or inspirational upon realizing that they are about to die.
Either way, it's an interesting thing to think about if you're facing your own death.
Shakespeare, William A coward dies a thousand times, but a hero only dies once.
"The courageous never taste of death but once," says Caesar in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
"Cowards die many times before their deaths; the heroic never taste death but once," Mandela chose and initialed "M, December 16th, 1977." Among all the miracles I have yet to hear, this is by far my favorite. It's also one of the most famous quotes in history. The original Greek myth tells of a conflict between the gods and the Titans over who would be the first to reach immortality. In order to win, Zeus made the other gods invincible except for Achilles, whose heel would allow him to die. The story goes that several heroes died before Achilles did, which means that Mandela's death mask is very rare -- there have been only about 80 recorded since it was created in 1978.
After graduating from high school, Mandela worked as a clerk at his uncle's law office until he earned enough money to open his own business. But because of the racial discrimination against black people in South Africa at the time, he was not allowed to become a lawyer. Instead, he started work on a dairy farm to learn the trade of being a farmer. He then moved to Johannesburg where he bought a bakery and opened a law office out of it. One of his first cases was that of an anti-apartheid activist who had been arrested for plotting to kill Nelson Mandela. After this case was settled, he stopped baking bread and started practicing law full-time.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste the death but once. Therefore, valor is not to be measured by how many times you are killed, but by how many times you survive them.
A true hero is someone who faces their fears and does what needs to be done regardless of the danger or pain it may cause them. There are people who face their fears every day and save others in the process, they are our heroes.
Also, heroes can sometimes become villains who help the good guys fight the bad ones. For example, Batman is a villain who fights against other villains. However, he's still considered a hero because he helps protect the world from evil.
And lastly, heroes can also be people who show courage and make important decisions even if they're not sure what will happen after they act. For example, President Lincoln was willing to risk his life by going up on stage during a war to speak words that would lead to more bloodshed. He knew this could hurt him and those around him, but he made the choice to go up there anyway.
We think this is a great way to look at life. Sometimes we do things that hurt others and ourselves. But because we learned from our mistakes, we are able to grow as people and not repeat them.
What does this imply? But did you pass away? Is a renowned top tier catchphrase from the equally iconic Hangover movie character Chow. It is used to ponder on the triviality of your friend's narrative, as if it were a doomsday prophesy in and of itself. However, it should be noted that although this phrase appears in the script, the scene was cut from the final film.
Chow (Zhao Benshan) is a supporting character in the 2003 comedy-drama film The Hanjin Manchurian Gold. At the end of the film, he seemingly dies when his parachute fails to open after jumping off a building during a gang war. In fact, he survived and was rescued by police at the last moment. When asked by a detective about what happened, he replied "what movie is this from?"
This is a reference to the famous line spoken by Jack Nicholson in 1980's 1980's Airport 'What kind of a question is that?', which was in response to the same detective asking him why he had robbed several airports across America.
The Hanjin Manchurian Gold was written and directed by Peter Chan and it is based on a true story. The film tells the story of an American who travels to South Korea to try and find his missing father who was kidnapped by Chinese smugglers years before.
