Famous quotes containing the words death and/or cell:

    The child who enters life comes not with knowledge or intent,
    So those who enter death must go as little children sent.
    Nothing is known. But I believe that God is overhead;
    And as life is to the living, so death is to the dead.
    Mary Mapes Dodge (1831–1905)

    She that but little patience knew,
    From childhood on, had now so much
    A grey gull lost its fear and flew
    Down to her cell and there alit,
    And there endured her fingers’ touch
    And from her fingers ate its bit.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
