Famous quotes containing the word corpse:
“The Politicians corpse was laid away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged,
I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged.”
—Hilaire Belloc (18701953)
“Now, a corpse, poor thing, is an untouchable and the process of decay is, of all pieces of bad manners, the vulgarest imaginable. For a corpse is, by definition, a person absolutely devoid of savoir vivre.”

Again, all but the leader: it was night
Momently and I feared: eleven same
Jesus-Christers unmembered and unmade,
Whose Corpse had died again in dirty shame.”
