He whose head is in heaven need not fear to put his feet into the grave.

Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
- Mark Twain

    Author: Assorted Authors

No man who is fit to live need fear to die. To us here, death is the most terrible thing we know. But when we have tasted its reality it will mean to us birth, deliverance, a new creation of ourselves. It will be what health is to the sick man; what home is to the exile; what the loved one given back is to the bereaved. As we draw near to it a solemn gladness should fill our hearts. It is God's great morning lighting up the sky. Our fears are the terror of children in the night. The night with its terrors, its darkness, its feverish dreams, is passing away; and when we awake it will be into the sunlight of God.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

Tombs are the clothes of the dead; a grave is but a plain suit; a rich monument is an embroidered one.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

The churchyard is the market place where all things are rated at their true value, and those who are approaching it talk of the world and its vanities with a wisdom unknown before.

    Author: Richard Baxter

Spend your time in nothing which you know must be repented of; in nothing on which you might not pray for the blessing of God; in nothing which you could not review with a quiet conscience on your dying bed; in nothing which you might not safely and properly be found doing if death should surprise you in the act.

    Author: Richard Baxter

The world dares say no more for its device, than "while I live, I hope"; but the children of God can add by virtue of a living hope, "while I expire, I hope."

    Author: Robert Leighton
