Died

Famous quotes containing the word died:

    Had I but died an hour before this chance,
    I had lived a blessed time; for from this instant
    There’s nothing serious in mortality.
    All is but toys; renown and grace is dead,
    The wine of life is drawn, and the mere lees
    Is left this vault to brag of.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I wish I were where Helen lies,
    Night and day on me she cries;
    And I am weary of the skies,
    For her sake that died for me.
    Unknown. Helen of Kirconnell (l. 37–40)

    In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
    With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
    As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free;
    Julia Ward Howe (1819–1910)
