You cannot be buried in obscurity: you are exposed upon a grand theater to the view of the world. If your actions are upright and benevolent, be assured they will augment your power and happiness.
What makes a date so dreadful is the weight of expectation attached to it. There is every chance that you may meet your soulmate, get married, have children and be buried side by side. There is an equal chance that the person you meet will look as if they’ve already been buried for some time.Guy Browning
Foolish mushroom heads... you may have bested me, but the Shroobs will live on... One day we will dance on the buried remains of your pathetic kingdom...
She shall be buried by her Antony: No grave upon the earth shall clip in it A pair so famous.
On the summit of the precipice and in the deep green woods emotions as palpable and as true have agitated me as if I were surveying them with the blessing of sight. There was an intelligence in the winds of the hills and in the solemn stillness of the buried foliage that could not be misleading. It entered into my heart and I could have wept, notthat Ididnot see, butthat Icould not portrayall I felt.
Thoughts die and are buried in the silences between sentences.
So the baby was carried in a small deal box, under an ancient woman's shawl, to the churchyard that night, and buried by lantern-light, at the cost of a shilling and a pint of beer to the sexton, in that shabby corner of God's allotment where He lets the nettles grow, and where all unbaptized infants, notorious drunkards, suicides, and others of the conjecturally damned are laid.thomas hardy
...as I write, Johnny Rotten's first moments in "Anarchy in the U.K."–a rolling earthquake of a laugh, a buried shout, then hoary words somehow stripped of all claptrap and set down in the city streets–I AM AN ANTICHRIST–Remain as powerful as anything I know. Listening to the record today–listening to the way Johnny Rotten tears at his lines, and then hurls the pieces at the world; recalling the all-consuming smile he produced as he sang–my back stiffens; I pull away even as my scalp begins to sweat.greil marcus
And after that Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Mach·pe´lah in front of Mam´re, that is to say, He´bron, in the land of Ca´naan. Thus the field and the cave that was in it became confirmed to Abraham for the possession of a burial place at the hands of the sons of Heth.
One of the present values of the past is as a repository of values we no longer endorse, of questions we no longer ask. One corresponding role for the intellectual historian is that of acting as a kind of archaeologist, bringing buried intellectual treasure back to the surface, dusting it down and enabling us to consider what we think of it.
I need not ask thee if that hand, now calmed, Has any Roman soldier mauled and knuckled, For thou wert dead, and buried and embalmed, Ere Romulus and Remus had been suckled: Antiquity appears to have begun Long after that primeval race was run.horace smith
Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest,Iwill lodge: thy peopleshall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the L do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.Bible (Old Testament)
A heat full of coldness, a sweet full of bitterness, a pain full of pleasantness, which maketh thoughts have eyes and hearts ears, bred by desire, nursed by delight, weaned by jealousy, killed by dissembling, buried by ingratitude, and this is love. Fair lady, will you any?john lyly
Surprised by joyimpatient as the wind I turned to share the transportOh! with whom But thee, deep buried in the silent tomb, That spot which no vicissitude can find? 928william wordsworth

The theory of empiricism is plausible because it assumes that accuracy about small matters prepares the way for valid judgment about large ones. What happens, however, is that the judgments are never made. The pedantic empiricist, buried in his little province of phenomena, imagines that fidelity to it exempts him from concern with larger aspects of reality.richard weaver
At length Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mam´re, to Kir´i·ath-ar´ba, that is to say, He´bron, where Abraham and also Isaac had resided as aliens. And the days of Isaac came to be a hundred and eighty years. After that Isaac expired and died and was gathered to his people, old and satisfied with days, and E´sau and Jacob his sons buried him.
