Will not all my riches save me? What! is there no bribing death?

Death rides in triumph,--fell destruction
  Lashes his fiery horse, and round about him
    His many thousand ways to let out souls.

      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher,
        The Custom of the Country

We must all die!
  All leave ourselves, it matters not where, when,
    Nor how, so we die well; and can that man that does so
      Need lamentation for him?
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher,
        Valentinian (act IV, sc. 4)

They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more.

And when no longer we can see Thee, may we reach out our hands, and find Thee leading us through death to immortality and glory.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Brethren, we are all sailing home; and by and by, when we are not thinking of it, some shadowy thing (men call it death), at midnight, will pass by, and will call us by name, and will say, "I have a message for you from home; God wants you; heaven waits for you."
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Going out into life--that is dying. Christ is the door out of life.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children; on this side captives, on that freemen; on this side disguised, unknown, on that disclosed and proclaimed as the sons of God.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that, citizens; on this side, orphans; on that, children; on this side, captives; on that, freemen.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

So we fall asleep in Jesus. We have played long enough at the games of life, and at last we feel the approach of death. We are tired out, and we lay our heads back on the bosom of Christ, and quietly fall asleep.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

There is but one easy place in this world, and that is the grave.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

To the Christian, these shades are the golden haze which heaven's light makes, when it meets the earth, and mingles with its shadows.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The wise man's eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness; and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all.
      - Bible, Ecclesiastes (ch. II, v. 14)

Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets.
      - Bible, Ecclesiastes (ch. XII, v. 5)

Judge none blessed before his death.
      - Bible, Ecclesiasticus (Apocrypha)

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
