A Quote by John Donne on age, angels, chance, death, despair, earth, imagination, laws, soul, and war

At the round earth's imagined corners, blow Your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise From death, you numberless infinities Of souls **** All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies, Despair, law, chance, hath slain.
