"......'ERE, HE SAYS HE'S NOT DEAD YET !"

Do not pass by my epitaph, traveler.
But having stopped, listen and learn, then go your way.
There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon,
No caretaker Aiakos, no dog Cerberus.
All we who are dead below
Have become bones and ashes, but nothing else.
I have spoken to you honestly, go on, traveler,
Lest even while dead I seem loquacious to you.
- Roman Tombstone


Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay


Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
and things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art; to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



 "From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity"- Thomas Moore

"The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?"~ Edgar Allan Poe


"My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other

 "I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it".- Mark Twain



 "I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter".- Winston Churchill

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain,
My friends, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case of which I'm certain.
I've lived a life that's full, I've travelled each and evr'y highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.
- Paul Anka
