Killed

Famous quotes containing the word killed:

    I’m right here to tell you, mister. There ain’t nobody gonna push me off my land. My grandpa took up this land seventy years ago. My pa was born here. We was all born on it. And some of us was killed on it. And some of us died on it. That’s what makes it ourn. Bein’ born on it. And workin’ on it. And dyin’ on it. And not no piece of paper with writin’ on it.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    I pray you, how many hath he killed and eaten in these wars? But how many hath he killed? For indeed, I promised to eat all of his killing.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Squats on a toad-stool under a tree
    A bodiless childfull of life in the gloom,
    Crying with frog voice, “What shall I be?
    Poor unborn ghost, for my mother killed me
    Scarcely alive in her wicked womb.
    Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803–1849)
