Old persons are sometimes as unwilling to die

  • Death a friend that alone can bring the peace his treasures cannot purchase, and remove the pain his physicians cannot cure.   – Mortimer Collins
  • Death is patiently making my mask as I sleep.  Each morning I awake to discover in the corners of my eyes the small tears of his wax.  – Philip Dow
  • For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.  – William Penn
  • Paradise – I see flowers
    from the cottage where I lie.
    ~Yaitsu’s death poem, 1807
  • Old persons are sometimes as unwilling to die as tired-out children are to say good night and go to bed.  – Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
