OUR life is long. Not so, wise Angels say
Who watch us waste it, trembling while they
weigh
Against eternity one squandered day.
Christina Rossetti


IF length of Days be thy portion, make it not thy Expectation. Reckon not upon long life: think every day the last, and live always beyond thy account. He that so often surviveth his Expectation lives many Lives, and will scarce complain of the shortness of his days. Time past is gone like a shadow; make time to come present.
Sir Thomas Browne


GENERATIONS are as the days of toilsome mankind; death and birth are the vesper and the matin bells, that summon mankind to sleep, and to rise refreshed for new advancement.
Thomas Carlyle
