Famous quotes containing the word deaths:

    You lived too long, we have supped full with heroes,
    they waste their deaths on us.
    C.D. Andrews (1913–1992)

    This is the 184th Demonstration.
    What we do is not beautiful
    hurts no one makes no one desperate
    we do not break the panes of safety glass
    stretching between people on the street
    and the deaths they hire.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    As deaths have accumulated I have begun to think of life and death as a set of balance scales. When one is young, the scale is heavily tipped toward the living. With the first death, the first consciousness of death, the counter scale begins to fall. Death by death, the scales shift weight until what was unthinkable becomes merely a matter of gravity and the fall into death becomes an easy step.
    Alison Hawthorne Deming (b. 1946)
