Famous quotes containing the word dead:

    My dog lay dead five days without a grave
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    Neither dead nor alive, the hostage is suspended by an incalculable outcome. It is not his destiny that awaits for him, nor his own death, but anonymous chance, which can only seem to him something absolutely arbitrary.... He is in a state of radical emergency, of virtual extermination.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    My demon,
    too often undressed,
    too often a crucifix I bring forth,
    too often a dead daisy I give water to
    too often the child I give birth to
    and then abort....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
