FUNERALS
[ Also see Bereavement Cemeteries Death Graves Mourners Mourning Undertakers ]

Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
      - Yogi Berra

But see! the well-plumed hearse comes nodding on, stately and slow;
  But tell us, why this waste?
    Why this ado in earthing up a carcass
      That's fallen into disgrace, and in the nostrils smells horrible?
      - Hugh Blair

It is but waste to bury them preciously.
      - Geoffrey Chaucer

The only kind office performed for us by our friends of which we never complain is our funeral; and the only thing which we most want, happens to be the only thing we never purchase--our coffin.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Groans and convulsions, and discolour'd faces,
  Friends weeping round us, blacks, and obsequies,
    Make death a dreadful thing; the pomp of death
      Is far mare terrible than death itself.
      - Nathaniel Lee

Thus, day by day, and month by month, we pass'd;
  It pleas'd the Lord to take my spouse at last.
    I tore my gown, I soil'd my locks with dust,
      And beat my breasts--as wretched widows must.
        Before my face my handkerchief I spread,
          To hide the flood of tears I did--not shed.
      - Alexander Pope

What though no friends in sable weeds appear,
  Grieve for an hour, perhaps, then mourn a year?
    And bear about the mockery of woe
      To midnight dances, and the public show!
      - Alexander Pope

Funerals are pretty compared to death.
      - Tennessee Williams

The nodding plume,
  Which makes poor man's humiliation proud;
    Boast of our ruin! triumph of our dust!
      - Edward Young
