Mors ultima linea rerum



Mors sceptra ligonibus aequat

"Death makes sceptres and hoes equal."

Mors vltima linea rerum

"Death, the final boundary of things."

After Horace

Divitiis flores, et maiorum nobilitate te iactas, et exsultas de pulchritudine corporis et honoribus qui tibi ab hominibus deferuntur. Respice te ipsum, quia mortalis es, et quia terra es, et in terram ibis.

"You flourish in wealth, and boast of the society of the great and powerful; you rejoice in the beauty of the body and the honours which men pay to you. Consider yourself, that you are mortal, that you are earth, and into the earth you shall go."

Prosper Tiro of Aquitaine, attributed to St. Augustine.

Sigh.

Well, while we are here, we can make it a little nicer for those we leave behind.
