A Clerk of Oxford: Anglo-Saxon Autumns
"Fus sceal feran, fæge sweltan
ond dogra gehwam ymb gedal sacan
middangeardes" - 'Those who are ready must go; the doomed die
and every day struggle against their departure
from the world'.

"Modor ne rædeð, ðonne heo magan cenneð, hu him weorðe geond worold widsið sceapen" - 'a mother cannot foresee, when she bears a child, how his journey through the world will be shaped for him'.
