"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main... Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."  by John Donne

The toll for another’s death is also a reminder to the individual hearer to get his own affairs in order in the short time remaining before his own death. 

While we deplore the loss of our beloved brother, let us not forget, my brethren, that we, too, are mortal; that our bodies, now so strong and vigorous, must ere long, like his, become tenants of the narrow grave; and that our spirits too, like his, must return to the God who spake them into existence. 

"Man that is born of woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth as a flower and is cut down; he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." "Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return;" 

Seeing then, that life is so uncertain, and that all earthly pursuits are vain, let us no longer postpone the all-important concern of preparing for eternity; but let us embrace the present moment, while time and opportunity are offered, to provide against that great change when all the pomps and pleasure of this fleeting world will pall upon the sense, and the recollection of a virtuous and well spent life will yield the only comfort and consolation.
