On a grave from the 1880s in Nantucket, Massachusetts :

Under the sod and under the trees,
Lies the body of Jonathan Pease.
He is not here, there's only the pod.
Pease shelled out and went to God.

==================================


In a cemetery in England :
Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so shall you be.
Remember this and follow me.

(To which someone replied by writing on the tombstone:
  To follow you I'll not consent.
  Until I know which way you went.
