Famous quotes containing the word died:

    An important Jew who died in exile.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    When he was a little boy
    Jesus was good all the time.
    No wonder that he grew up to be such a big shot
    who could forgive people so much.
    When he died everyone was mean.
    Later on he rose when no one else was looking.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    these heroic happy dead
    who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
    they did not stop to think they died instead
    then shall the voice of liberty be mute?

    He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)
