"Quick and the dead" nghĩa là gì?

'Quick and the dead' = the living and the dead nghĩa là người còn sống và đã chết.

Ví dụ
There's a school of thought that dictates there are only two types of people on Wall Street – the quick and the dead.

What Sanders doesn't say about God and faith can be revealing. He never speaks of an Almighty who blesses the United States or hears the prayers of Israel, nor a God who judges the quick and the dead.

Bill Clinton roped off favorite tourist sites like the Washington Monument, explaining that, what th' heck, he couldn't help it if Congress had decided to balance the federal budget on his back. It wasn't his doing. Call it the Big Bluff, and it works every time--at least on the gullible and credulous. It's always worth a try even if Republicans and other spoilsports see right through it, and understand just what's going on. But they're inevitably painted as the Bad Guys who keep We the People from enjoying our own parks, monuments and other recreational spots. Or even visiting national cemeteries. Both the quick and the dead must be dragged into this political dispute.
