Famous quotes containing the word morgue:

    True enough, the country is calm. Calm as a morgue or a grave, would you not say?
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    To enumerate the different trades by which the women in New York are endeavoring—not to live—that for many of them is as utterly unattainable a goal as the end of the rainbow—but simply to postpone as long as possible their appearance at the morgue or the cemetery—to attempt to do this would be useless.
    Katharine Pearson Woods (1853–1923)
