Famous quotes containing the word die:
“Sweetest love, I do not go
For weariness of thee,
Nor in hope the world can show
A fitter love for me;
But since that I
Must die at last, tis best
To use myself in jest
Thus by feigned deaths to die.”
—John Donne (15721631)
“Fancy that thou deservest to be hanged ... thou wilt feel it happiness to be only shot: fancy that thou deservest to be hanged in a hair halter, it will be a luxury to die in hemp.”
—Thomas Carlyle (17951881)
“The hat I was married in,
will it do?
White, broad, fake flowers in a tiny array.
Its old-fashioned, as stylish as a bedbug,
but it suits to die in something nostalgic.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
