VŠ vŠ vŠ habitantibus in terra.

Apocalypsis viii.

Cuncta in quibus spiraculum vitŠ est, mortua sunt.

Genesis vii.

Malheureux qui uiuez au monde

Tousiours remplis d'aduersitez,

Pour quelque bien qui uous abonde,

Serez tous de Mort uisitez.

A crowd of skeletons, playing on horns, trumpets, and the like, summon mankind to the grave.

Death belongs to life as birth does. The walk is in the raising of the foot as in the laying of it down. -- Rabrindranath Tagore
