John Edwin

1749 - 1790

A Quote by John Edwin on progress, trouble, and world

A man's ingress into the world is naked and bare, His progress through the world is trouble and care; And lastly, his egress out of the world, is nobody knows where. If we do well here, we shall do well there: I can tell you no more if I preach a whole year.
