"When death comes, let it find you alive"
"Anthem" by Leonard Cohen
"The birds they sang at the break of day Start again, I heard them say Don't dwell on what has passed away or what has yet to be...
Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack in everything That's how the light gets in"

"When distant Tweed is heard to rave, And owlet to hoot o'er the dead man's grave, Then go - but go alone the while- Then view St. David's ruined pile; And home returning, soothly swear; Was ever scene so sad and fair;"
----by Sir Walter Scott "Lay of the Last Minstrel"
