    The fact that he wrote 239 different poems plus his books in his 45 years of living is amazing.

    (from Wiki)

    Stevenson had always wanted his 'Requiem' inscribed on his tomb:

    '' Under the wide and starry sky,
    Dig the grave and let me lie.
    Glad did I live and gladly die,
    And I laid me down with a will.
    This be the verse you grave for me:
    Here he lies where he longed to be;
    Home is the sailor, home from sea,
    And the hunter home from the hill. ''

    -
    However, the piece is MISQUOTED in many places, including his tomb:

    Home is the sailor, home from THE sea,
    And the hunter home from the hill.

I watched my leaden soldiers go,
With different uniforms and drills,
Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;
