“We are all conceived in close prison, and then all our life is but a going out to the place of execution, of death. Nor was there any man seen to sleep in the cart between Newgate and Tyburn – between prison and the place of execution does any man sleep? But we sleep all the way; from the womb to the grave we are never thoroughly awake.”

~ John Donne, in a sermon
