A man's ingress into the world is naked and bare,
  His progress through the world is trouble and care;
    And lastly, his egress out of the world, is nobody knows where.
      If we do well here, we shall do well there;
        I can tell you no more if I preach a whole year.
      - John Edwin,
        The Eccentricities of John Edwin

Life's a vast sea
  That does its mighty errand without fail,
    Painting in unchanged strength though waves are changing.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy (bk. III)

Life is an art in which too many remain only dilettantes.

Life is short, and time is swift;

Life itself is a bubble and a scepticism, and a sleep within a sleep.

Sooner or later that which is now life shall be poetry, and every fair and manly trait shall add a richer strain to the song.

Life's an Inn, my house will shew it;--
  I thought so once, but now I know it.
      - Epitaph,
        epitaph of an innkeeper in Eton, printed in Mr. Fairley's "Epitaphiana" (edition 1875)

Life's like an inn where travelers stay,
  Some only breakfast and away;
    Others to dinner stop, and are full fed;
      The oldest only sup and go to bed.
      - Epitaph,
        epitaph on tomb in Silkstone, England, to the memory of John Ellis (1766)

Man's life is like a Winter's day:
  Some only breakfast and away;
    Others to dinner stay and are full fed,
      The oldest man but sups and goes to bed.
        Long is his life who lingers out the day,
          Who goes the soonest has the least to pay;
            Death is the Waiter, some few run on tick,
              And some alas! must pay the bill to Nick!
                Tho' I owed much, I hope long trust is given,
                  And truly mean to pay all bills in Heaven.
      - Epitaph,
        an epitaph in Barnwell Churchyard, near Cambridge, England

This world's a city of crooked streets,
  Death's the market-place where all men meet;
    If life were merchandise that men should buy,
      The rich would always live, the poor might die.
      - Epitaph

No one is to be despaired of as long as he breathes. (Where there is life there is hope.)
  [Lat., Nulli desperandum, quam diu spirat.]

So likewise all this life of martall men,
  What is it but a certaine kynde of stage plaie?
    Where men come forthe disguised one in one arraie,
      An other in an other eche plaiying his part.
      - Desiderius Gerhard Erasmus,
        Praise of Folie (p. 43),
        (Challoner's translation)

Life is a short affair; we should try to make it smooth, and free from strife.
      - Euripides
