History, grad school, and gravestones!
I love the ones that show evidence of some degree of literary originality -- that's how I real the parallel construction "called to his office and to his reward." Quite lovely.It reminds me of an epitaph quoted in the Oxford Book of Oxford, for a boy who was admitted but died before the term began. It was something like, "He was the first in his class and we hope not the last in heaven, whither he went instead of to Oxford."
