Died

Famous quotes containing the word died:

    Allow me, whom Fortune always desires to bury, lay down my life in these final trivialities. Many have freely died in longlasting loves, among whose number may the earth cover me as well.
    Propertius Sextus (c. 50–16 B.C.)

    The poor world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time there was not any man died in his own person,
    videlicet, in a love-cause.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The soldier takes pride in saluting his Captain,
    The devotee proffers a knee to his Lord,
    Some back a mare thrown from a thoroughbred,
    Troy backed its Helen, Troy died and adored;
    Great nations blossom above,
    A slave bows down to a slave.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
