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)

    Its whether will ye be a rank robber’s wife,
    Or will ye die by my wee pen knife?

    Its I’ll not be a rank robber’s wife,
    But I’ll rather die by your wee pen knife.

    He ‘s killed this may and he ‘s laid her by,
    For to bear the red rose company.
    Unknown. Babylon; or, The Bonnie Banks o’ Fordie (l. 9–14)

    My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.
    Robert Bresson (b. 1907)
