C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  What thou givest after thy death, remember that thou givest it to a stranger, and most times to an enemy; for he that shall marry thy wife will despise thee, thy memory, and thine, and shall possess the quiet of thy labors, the fruit which thou hast planted, enjoy thy love, and spend with joy and ease what thou hast spared and gotten with care and travail.
Sir Walter Raleigh.    
  What you leave at your death, let it be without controversy, else the lawyers will be your heirs.
F. Osborn.
