Famous quotes containing the word die:

    Places where he might live and die and never hear of the United States, which make such a noise in the world,—never hear of America, so called from the name of a European gentleman.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If sometimes our poor people have had to die of starvation, it is not that God didn’t care for them, but because you and I didn’t give, were not an instrument of love in the hands of God, to give them that bread, to give them that clothing; because we did not recognize him, when once more Christ came in distressing disguise, in the hungry man, in the lonely man, in the homeless child, and seeking for shelter.
    Mother Teresa (b. 1910)

    Christianity gave Eros poison to drink:Mhe did not die of it, to be sure, but degenerated into a vice.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
