1
    The Grave, dread thing!
Men shiver when thou ’rt named: Nature, appall’d,
Shakes off her wonted firmness.
          The Grave. Part i. Line 9.
2
    The schoolboy, with his satchel in his hand,
Whistling aloud to bear his courage up. 1
          The Grave. Part i. Line 58.
3
    Friendship! mysterious cement of the soul!
Sweetener of life! and solder of society!
          The Grave. Part i. Line 88.
4
    Of joys departed,
Not to return, how painful the remembrance!
          The Grave. Part i. Line 109.
5
    The cup goes round:
And who so artful as to put it by!
’T is long since Death had the majority.
          The Grave. Part ii. Line 449.
6
    The good he scorn’d
Stalk’d off reluctant, like an ill-used ghost,
Not to return; or if it did, in visits
Like those of angels, short and far between. 2
          The Grave. Part ii. Line 586.
