John Donne – Death makes us all equal

Share this quote:
John DonneDeath comes equally to us all, and makes us all equal when it comes. The ashes of an Oak in the Chimney, are no epitaph of that Oak, to tell me how high or how large that was; It tells me not what flocks it sheltered while it stood, nor what men It hurt when it fell.

John Donne   (1572-1631)
LXXX Sermons
