Channing placed several inscriptions, among them this, “Hail to thee, O man! who hast come from the transitory place to the imperishable.” This sentiment may stand as faintly marking Thoreau's deep, vital conviction of immortality, of which he never had entertained a doubt in his life. There was in his view of the world and its Maker no room for doubt; so that when he was once asked, superfluously, what he thought of a future world and its compensations, he replied, “ Those were voluntaries I did not take,” -- having confined himself to the foreordained course of things. He is buried in the village cemetery, quaintly named “ Sleepy Hollow," with his family and friends about him; one of whom, surviving him for a few years, said, as she looked upon his low head-stone on the hillside, 6 Concord is Henry's monument, covered with suitable inscriptions by his own hand.”
