  • Man's life is like unto a winter's day,—
    Some break their fast and so depart away;
    Others stay dinner, then depart full fed;
    The longest age but sups and goes to bed.
    O reader, then behold and see!
    As we are now, so must you be.
    • Horæ Sucissive (1631), reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
