    Epitaphs from headstones of the famous, and the infamous

    An epitaph is a short text that is engraved on a gravestone or plaque in the memory of a deceased person. Often epitaphs are chosen by those closest to the departed soul. Such epitaphs are mostly famous quotes from the Bible or other quotations. Maybe a few lines from a poem and so on that described the deceased person’s life, personality or career. However, at times epitaphs are also specified by the person before their departure. There are many famous persons who left an equally memorable message on their tombstones to remember them by when they died.
