Tortuosity of thought in the Religio redeemed by the erudition of Urn Burial

"When men that feared to die shall groan that they can die but once, the dismal state is the second and living death; when life puts despair on the damned; when men shall wish the coverings of mountains, not of monuments, and annihilation shall be courted"
"one face of Janus holds no proportion unto the other" --> with respect to time and the Great Silent Majority (which continues to bide its time)
"but all was vanity. feeding the wind"
"five languages secured not the epitaph of gordianus" (in greek, latin, hebrew, egyptian, arabic, defaced by licinius the emperor)

An inspiring work for all who love words and appreciate erudition. That does not take away from the imaginative largesse of Browne's prose. The glossary and notes included in this edition are helpful to all who are not scholars of the history of literature.
