Wisdom of Sirach 41:1

O death, how bitter is the remembrance of you to a man that lives at rest in his possessions, to the man that has nothing to vex him, and that has prosperity in all things: yes, to him that is yet able to receive meat!
Read Chapter 41

Rabanus Maurus

AD 856
The death of the flesh, which is the end of bodily life, is bitter for one who trusts in the prosperity of this world and the pursuit of riches, since he has not learned to love the joys of the future life. But since "the world and its disordered desires are passing away," all those who love it will weep when it is no more. - "On Ecclesiasticus 9.2"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
