For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

That makes calamity of so long life;”
“As other's lives are often only dreams to us, so also others' deaths.”

No more enduring than last night's dream.”

Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
and things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art; to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
