The sepulchre of the parents and family of Patrick Guthrie, 1631
Fates come by certain order, none can stay,
Or `gainst the order offer of delay.
The grave is ready still, and doth receive
The cited people ; farther will not crave.
Lo, thou my days an hand breadth mad`st ;
mine age is in thine eye
As nothing : surely man at best,
is wholly vanity -- Ps. xxxix
Tertullian of the flesh.
The resurrection of Christ is the key of the graves of the dead, and the pattern and hope is ours.
So also is the resurrection of the dead : it is sown in corruption, it is raised in corruption
Life is too much the shadow of tomorrow.
