Remember, you shall die – and when and where and how you cannot tell.  Remember, the death of sinners is most terrible.  Remember, the death of God’s saints is most precious in His sight.  Remember, the multitude goeth the wide way, which windeth to woe.  Remember, the strait gate which leadeth to glory hath but few travelers.  Remember, Christ biddeth you strive to enter thereat.  Remember, he that trusteth in the Lord shall receive strength to stand against all the assaults of his enemies. – Letter: John Bradford (1510-1555) to Francis Russell, Earl of Bedford (ca. 1527-1585) (1551)
