In case list members are spending valuable hours searching for that quotation about carrying the corpse of one's grandfather, it turns out that the actual quotation is about the corpse of one's father:
On ne peut pas transporter partout avec soi le cadavre de son pere
from Apollinaire's "Les Peintres cubistes" of 1913.
It was list master Greg Foster, right here at the U. of Mo. who tracked it down.
