Irish Sayings in Death Gore Vidal Unrepentant Fenian Bastard

Irish Sayings and the Death of Gore Vidal

Death puts its own appearance on everyone.

Death is the poor mans doctor.

Call no man a wise man till the worms have done him in.

There is hope from the ocean, but none from the grave.

The mouth of the grave gives to the needy one.

When death comes it will not go away empty.

Death is in the front of every old person and at the back of every young person.

Both your friend and your enemy think that you will never die.

The smallest of things outlives the human being.

We owe the grave many a day.

The skin of the old sheep is on the rafter no sooner than the skin of the young sheep.

The branch lives on the hedge but the hand that planted it is dead.

Nobody knows where his sod of death is.

Gore Vidal Died Last Week Aged 86
"Never miss a chance to have sex or appear on television," Vidal said. He didn't.
