- Dear Night! this world's defeat;
- The stop to busy fools; care's check and curb;
- The day of spirits; my soul's calm retreat
- Which none disturb!
- Christ's progress, and His prayer-time;
- The hours to which high Heaven doth chime.
HENRY VAUGHAN, Silex Scintillans
- Thou can'st not die. Here thou art more than safe
- Where every book is thy epitaph.
HENRY VAUGHAN, attributed, Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations
