Death Row Prisoners

Famous quotes containing the words death, row and/or prisoners:

    How many wives have been forced by the death of well-intentioned but too protective husbands to face reality late in life, bewildered and frightened because they were strangers to it!
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    Row after row with strict impunity
    The headstones yield their names to the element,
    The wind whirrs without recollection....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    We are the prisoners of ideas. They catch us up for moments into their heaven, and so fully engage us, that we take no thought for the morrow, gaze like children, without an effort to make them our own.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
