Famous quotes containing the word posthumous:

    Fashion, though in a strange way, represents all manly virtue. It is virtue gone to seed: it is a kind of posthumous honor. It does not often caress the great, but the children of the great: it is a hall of the Past.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    One must be a living man and a posthumous artist.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)
