MEMENTO MOR[ON]I †


“Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.” – Epicurus


“If you should die before me, ask if you could bring a friend” – anonymous


We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future.  It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance.  – Marcel Proust


“Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.” – The Infected One


Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me.
The Carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality
– Emily Dickinson
