Tell me upon whose grave you dance
and I will tell you what your opinions are. If you reply that you dance on no one’s grave, because it is unseemly to dance on graves, I have to tell you that you are not a modern man, indeed that you are seriously behind the times; for failure to celebrate the death of a person whom you detest implies a degree of self-control that is harmful to the health. As William Blake put it, ‘Sooner strangle an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires;’ and if you control yourself, who knows what terrible consequences might follow? Unseemliness is not something, therefore, that worries people unduly these days.
But dancing on her [Thatchers] grave is another thing. Blair is incomparably a worse person than she, with practically nothing to be said in his defence: but I would not dance on his grave because it wrong to dance on graves. Theodore Dalrymple: Thatcher – The Dance of Death
