|There is a voice from the tomb sweeter than song. There is a remembrance of the dead to which we turn even from the charms of the living. Oh, the grave!the grave! It buries every error, covers every defect, extinguishes every resentment! From its peaceful bosom spring none but fond regrets and tender recollections.|
Washington Irving.The Sketch-Book: The Grave.
|Nothing that is shall perish utterly,|
But perish only to revive again
In other forms, as clouds restore in rain
The exhalations of the land and sea.
Longfellow.Michael Angelo: Dedication.
