Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    It’s all a matter of history.
    Brandy is no solace.
    Librium only lies me down
    like a dead snow queen.
    Yes! I am still the criminal.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    A “modern” man has nothing to add to modernism, if only because he has nothing to oppose it with. The well-adapted drop off the dead limb of time like lice.
    Elias Canetti (b. 1905)

    East and west on fields forgotten
    Bleach the bones of comrades slain,
    Lovely lads and dead and rotten;
    None that go return again.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
