  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

In 1912, timber worker William Toogood had a vivid prophetic dream of his impending death and the gruesome way in which it would occur. The following day William told his workmates of the disturbing dream, describing how logs had to be lifted to recover his battered body. Later that day, William Toogood died, precisely in the manner in which his dream had foretold.

This and other similar cases of prophetic dreams are included in Dream, Dream, Dream … prophetic visions from the land of nod. Sometimes however, people simply have a sense, or feeling that their time will soon be up. There is no vivid dream, no profound vision, but just, well, a hunch.

Not sure if any of those were as convincing as Abe Lincoln's premonitions.

- except the guy who knew he would be struck by a fallen tree,  hid behind another to avoid it, only to be struck by a fallen branch from that tree.  That one was downright creepy.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Inscription - Temple of Delphi
