Your Cup o' -- Tombstones- an Inspirational Quote
October 31, 2006
Dear friend,

Today's quote is in honor of Halloween. Only Benjamin Franklin could have provided us with this tombstone ephitath:

The body of Benjamin Franklin
(Like the cover of an old book its contents torn out
and stript of its lettering and gilding)
Lies here, food for worms
But the work itself
shall not be lost
For it will, as he believed
appear once more
In a new
and more elegant edition
Revised and corrected
The Author

[Note: Franklin proposed this for his own gravestone. In actuality, just his name and dates appeared on his final gravestone.]

Have a very lovely day. To visit, just click on it.
