In C. A. Dowson Scott’s Nooks and Corners of Cornwall (1912), Scott told of a curious epitaph located at St. Winwalloe’s churchyard, Gunwalloe, Cornwall:
Shall we all die?
We shall die all;
All die shall we —
Die all we shall.
While the epitaph is pretty amusing due to its palindromic nature (and it can be read vertically as well), it also reminds us of an eternal truth some people refuse to face, that we are mortals and shall eventually die.
