A headstone quote or headstone saying inscribed on a memorial, called an epitaph, serves as an everlasting tribute to a departed loved one. You are invited to use this list of 1,543 headstone quotes and headstone sayings (epitaphs) as inspiration in deciding on your own meaningful and personal epitaph, or you might find that find that one from the list fits perfectly as it is.

There is something special to say about everyone but summarizing a life in just a few words can be very difficult. Often a familiar biblical verse or classical quotation is an ideal way to preserve an enduring memory. An epitaph is a short text honoring a deceased person, which is often inscribed or engraved on their monument, headstone, memorial plaque, gravestone, tombstone or cemetery marker. If you have your own Headstone Quotes, Saying or Epitaphs, Schlitzberger and Daughters can help you make it a part of your loved one’s memorial. Please contact us to discuss adding an epitaph to your monument or memorial.

Advice on choosing an epitaph

1) “Less is more” – epitaphs are usually short and concise. Even if you use the whole reverse of a headstone, you will be limited to a few lines. They are a chance to sum up a person’s life in just a few words, to give it shape and express real emotion.

2) Epitaphs often convey a strong feeling. However, the best epitaphs are timeless and not overly sentimental, and for this reason, I always advise waiting at least a year before choosing so that emotions have time to settle and you don’t later regret your choice.

3) Often, someone is speaking in the first person (a relative, a friend; the deceased). You might want to think about whose voice you want this to be.

4) Consider whether you want the epitaphs to speak directly to someone. This may be a passerby or the loved one themselves.
