DEAD

And Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
      - Bible, Luke (ch. IX, v. 60)

He who hath bent him o'er the dead,
  Ere the first day of death is fled--
    The first dark day of nothingness,
      The last of danger and distress,
        (Before Decay's effacing fingers,
          Have swept the lines where beauty lingers)--
            And mark'd the mild angelic air,
              The rapture of repose that's there.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

We hold reunions, not for the dead, for there is nothing in all the earth that you and I can do for the dead. They are past our help and past our praise. We can add to them no glory, we can give to them no immortality. They do not need us, but forever and forever more we need them.
      - James Abram Garfield

Death puts an end to rivalship and competition. The dead can boast no advantage over us, nor can we triumph over them.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Of the dead be nothing said but what is good.
  [Lat., De mortuis nil nisi bonum.]
      - Unknown,
        translation possibly attributable to James Whitcomb Riley
