Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    Some dead undid their bushy jaws,
    And bags of blood let out their flies;
    He had by heart the Christ-cross-row of death.
    Sleep navigates the tides of time;
    The dry Sargasso of the tomb
    Gives up its dead to such a working sea....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Then my verse I dishonour, my pictures despise,
    My person degrade & my temper chastise;
    And the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame;
    And my talents I bury, and dead is my fame.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Look. And the dancers move
    On the departed, snow bushed green, wanton in moon light
    As a dust of pigeons. Exulting, the grave hooved
    Horses, centaur dead, turn and tread the drenched white
    Paddocks in the farms of birds. The dead oak walks for love.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
