Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    The Abbey always reminds me of that old toast, “Above lofty timbers, the walls around are bare, echoing to our laughter, as though the dead were there.”
    Garrett Fort (1900–1945)

    Here come the line-gang pioneering by.
    They throw a forest down less cut than broken.
    They plant dead trees for living, and the dead
    They string together with a living thread.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    And they came to an end, a dead end stirred with a flicker of life,
    And they came to the withered ancient look of a child that has died of starvation.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
