SO take and use Thy work,
Amend what flaws may lurk,
What strain o’ the stuff, what warpings past the aim!
My times be in Thy hand!
Perfect the cup as planned!
Let age approve of youth, and death complete the same!
Robert Browning

APPROXIMATE thy latter times by present apprehensions of them; be like a neighbour unto the grave, and think there is but little to come. And since there is something in us that will still live on, join both lives together, and live in one but for the other.
Sir Thomas Browne

NOTHING that is worthy of a living man can be unworthy of a dying one: and whatever is shocking in the last moment would be disgraceful in every other.
James Martineau

FOR Death is no more than a turning of us over from Time to Eternity.
William Penn
