Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    All my life I’ve been running, from welfare officers, thugs, my father. See, there they are [the killers]. There on the bridge. I’m a dead man. Nosseros told me that. He told me. He said, “You got it all, but you’re a dead man, Harry Fabian.”
    Jo Eisinger, and Jules Dassin. Harry Fabian (Richard Widmark)

    Listen. The minstrels sing
    In the departed villages. The nightingale,
    Dust in the buried wood, flies on the grains of her wings
    And spells on the winds of the dead his winter’s tale.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
