How true it is, that there isnothing dead inthis Universe; that what we call dead is only changed, its forces working in inverse order! 'The leaf that lies rotting in moist winds,'says one,'has still force; else how could it rot?'
Don't worry. Your friends are Dead and you are going to join them.klaus barbie
Of the twenty or so civilizations known to modern Western historians, all except our own appear to be Dead or moribund, and, when we diagnose each case, in extremis or post mortem, we invariably find that the cause of death has been either War or Class or some combination of the two. To date, these two plagues have been deadly enough, in partnership, to kill off nineteen out of twenty representatives of this recently evolved species of human society; but, up to now, the deadliness of these scourges has had a saving limit.Arnold Joseph Toynbee
Far from affording artists continuous inspiration, mass-media sources for art have become a Dead end. They have combined with the abstractness of institutional art teaching to produce a fine-arts culture given over to information and not experience. This faithfully echoes the drain of concreteness from modern existence— the reign of mere unassimilated data instead of events that gain meaning by being absorbed into the fabric of imaginative life.robert hughes
Individual societies begin in harmonious adaptation to the environment and, like individuals, quickly get trapped into nonadaptive, artificial, repetitive sequences.When the individual's behavior and consciousness get hooked to a routine sequence of external actions, he is a Dead robot, and it is time for him to die and be reborn. Time to "drop out," "turn on," and "tune in." This period of robotization is called the Kali Yuga, the Age of Strife and Empire...timothy leary
Depression is about as close as you get to somewhere between Dead and alive, and it's the worst.Elizabeth Wurtzel
They say you shouldn't say nothin' about the Dead unless it's good. He's Dead. Good!moms mabley
Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the Dead.jesus christ
Boys flying kites haul in their white winged birds; You can't do that way when you're flying words. "Careful with fire," is good advice we know "Careful with words," is ten times doubly so. Thoughts unexpressed may sometimes fall back Dead; But God Himself can't kill them when they're said.will carleton
But it pleased God to visit us then with death daily, and with so general a disease that the living were scarce able to bury the Dead.william bradford
The objects that we have known in better days are the main props that sustain the weight of our affections, and give us strength to await our future lot. The future is like a Dead wall or a thick mist hiding all objects from our view; the past is alive and stirring with objects, bright or solemn, and of unfading interest.william hazlitt
Give place: for the maid is not Dead, but sleepeth.jesus christ
So the bastard's Dead? Too bad we didn't capture him alive!joseph stalin
Come, clear the way, then, clear the way: Blind creeds and kings have had their day. Break the Dead branches from the path; Our hope is in the aftermath Our hope is in heroic men, Star-led to build the world again. To this Event the ages ran: Make way for Brotherhood make way for Man.edwin markham
We bury love, Forgetfulness grows over it like grass; That is a thing to weep for, not the Dead.alexander smith
We're all Dead, blow it! BLOW IT!
Enough! I'm taking that bird back with me, ALIVE... OR Dead!
When I consider the Dead and their families, I cannot repress my mental agony.Hirohito
"It's possible, but not interesting," Lonnrot answered. "You will reply that reality hasn't the slightest need to be of interest. And I'll answer you that reality may avoid the obligation to be interesting, but that hypotheses may not. In the hypothesis you have postulated, chance intervenes largely. Here lies a Dead rabbi; I should prefer a purely rabbinical explanation; not the imaginary mischances of an imaginary robber."jorge luis borges
