Famous quotes containing the word died:

    Cannons and fire-arms are cruel and damnable machines; I believe them to have been the direct suggestion of the Devil. If Adam had seen in a vision the horrible instruments his children were to invent, he would have died of grief.
    Martin Luther (1483–1546)

    I tell the tale that I heard told.
    Mithridates, he died old.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    Cotton Mather died when I was a boy. The books
    He read, all day, all night and all the nights,
    Had got him nowhere. There was always the doubt,
    That made him preach the louder, long for a church
    In which his voice would roll its cadences,
    After the sermon, to quiet that mouse in the wall.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
