Death: The Final Boundary of Things

(Mors ultima linea rerum)

Divitys flores, maiorum nobilitate te iactas, et exul: tas de pulchritudine corporis et honoribus qui tibi ab hominibus deferentur. 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.
