Famous quotes containing the word die:

    He had decided to live for ever or die in the attempt.
    Joseph Heller (b. 1923)

    But some who this blithe mood present,
    As on in lightsome files they fare,
    Shall die experienced ere three days be spent—
    Perish, enlightened by the vollied glare;
    Or shame survive, and, like to adamant,
    Thy after shock, Manassas, share.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    “O mother, mother, make my bed!
    O make it saft and narrow!
    Since my love died for me today,
    I’ll die for him tomorrow.”
    Unknown. Bonny Barbara Allan (l. 33–36)
