Word for the Wise November 02, 2006 Broadcast Topic: Epitaphs

Not only is today All Souls?Day; it is also Plan Your Epitaph Day. Cemetery lovers (and yes, count us in that group) might want to get some ideas from the stone-inscribed tombstones themselves. For those unable or unwilling to wander the graveyards, we抣l pass along a few of our favorite inscriptions. We can抰 vouch for their veracity, but even if they抮e apocryphal, we appreciate their 杁are we say it?梔own-to-earth humor. (来源:英语麦当劳 http://www.EnglishCN.com)

Take this notation under an attorney抯 name: The defense rests. Or this, for a late, lamented Scottish dentist: Stranger, tread/This ground with gravity/Dentist Brown/Is filling his last cavity.

The passing of a fisherman was noted with these lines: He抯 done a-catching cod/And gone to meet his God, while the final planting of a farmer was marked with this inscription: Here lies a farmer who/Has now properly assumed/All of his obligations. Our penultimate lines are these forsaken words of a traveling salesman: My trip is ended/Send my samples home. And finally, we抣l close with the words of a mellifluous crooner (surname: Sinatra): The Best is Yet to Come.
