Emigravit, is the inscription on the tombstone where he lies;
Deal he is not, but departed,--for the artist never dies.

In Epitaph Quotes
I strove with none, for none was worth my strife;
Nature I loved, and after Nature, Art;
I warmed both hands before the fire of life;
It sinks, and I am ready to depart.

In Epitaph Quotes
Underneath this stone doth lie
As much beauty as could die;
Which in life did harbor give
To more virtue that doth live.
If at all she had a fault,
Leave it buried in this vault.

Underneath this sable herse
Lies the subject of all verse,--
Sydneye's sister, Pembroke's mother.
Death, ere thou hast slaine another,
Faire and learn'd and good as she,
Tyme shall throw a dart at thee.

The hand of him here torpid lies,
That drew th' essential form of grace,
Here closed in death th' attentive eyes
That saw the manners in the face.

In Epitaph Quotes
Under the shadow of a leafy bough
That leaned toward a singing rivulet,
One pure white stone, whereon, like crown on brow,
The image of the vanished star was set;
And this was graven on the pure white stone
In golden letters--"While she lived she shone."

Here she lies a pretty bud,
Lately made of flesh and blood;
Who, as soone fell fast asleep,
As her little eyes did peep.
Give her strewings, but not stir
The earth that lightly covers her.

But here's the sunset of a tedious day,
These two asleep are; I'll but be undrest,
And so to bed. Pray wish us all good rest.

Loe here the precious dust is layd; Whose purely-temper'd clay was made So fine that it the guest betray'd. Else the soule grew so fast within, It broke the outward shall of sinne And so was hatch'd a cherubin.

And the voice of men shall call, He is fallen like us all, Though the weapon of the Lord was in his hand: And thine epitaph shall be-- He was wretched ev'n as we; And thy tomb may be unhonoured in the land.

In Epitaph Quotes
Let there be no inscription upon my tomb. Let no man write my epitaph. No man can write my epitaph. I am here ready to die. I am not allowed to vindicate my character; and when I am prevented from vindicating myself, let no man dare calumniate me. Let my character and motives repose in obscurity and peace, till other times and other men can do them justice.
