Memorial Day Quotes (Decoration Day)

He's dead alone who lacks her light! ~Thomas Campbell Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.  ~From a headstone in Ireland They fell, but o'er their glorious grave Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save. ~Francis Marion Crawford The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men. ~Minot J. Savage But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye. ~Thomas Dunn English And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.
