Father Yánaros, too, had dug his grave here, with his own hands; he had chiseled letters on a tombstone and painted them red:  “Death I fear you not!”  Father Yánaros stood happily for a moment over his grave.  “Death, I do not fear you,” he murmured, and suddenly he felt free.  “he who does not fear death is free.”  Father Yánaros stroked his beard, satisfied.  God, he pondered, is there is a greater joy than freedom from death? No,” he went on, “no!”
— The Fratricides, Nikos Kazantzakis

the text is from one of my most very favorite authors, nikos kazantzakis, and the novel the fratricides -

the full passage describes how father yánaros has literally dug his own grave.on the ring it's a bit condensed.
the ring reads:

death i do not fear you
and suddenly he felt free
what does it mean to be free
he who does not fear death is free
is there a greater joy, no!
