Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    We never become really and genuinely our entire and honest selves until we are dead—and not then until we have been dead years and years. People ought to start dead and then they would be honest so much earlier.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Wild Bill was indulging in his favorite pastime of a friendly game of cards in the old No. 10 saloon. For the second time in his career, he was sitting with his back to an open door. Jack McCall walked in, shot him through the back of the head, and rushed from the place, only to be captured shortly afterward. Wild Bill’s dead hand held aces and eights, and from that time on this has been known in the West as “the dead man’s hand.”
    State of South Dakota, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    So up and down I sow them
    For lads like me to find,
    When I shall lie below them,
    A dead man out of mind.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
