Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    So vulnerable.
    She is already trampled, that one,
    having traveled so far from the heart.
    She weighs so little.
    She is so light and vulnerable.
    She is the dead bee called love.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The landscape of the northern Sprawl woke confused memories of childhood for Case, dead grass tufting the cracks in a canted slab of freeway concrete. The train began to decelerate ten kilometers from the airport. Case watched the sun rise on the landscape of childhood, on broken slag and the rusting shells of refineries.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    We are all dead men.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 12:33.
