Famous quotes containing the word corpse:

    The Politician’s corpse was laid away.
    While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged,
    I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged.
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    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.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    the horsemen came
    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.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
