Between the understanding of one’s own mortality and the recognition of life on Earth as a beautiful opportunity, there is a captivating and beautiful dichotomy in holding the concepts of Life and Death together.

The macabre Latin Christian phrase of antiquity, “Memento mori”, acts as a succinct mantra in today’s modern world. “Remember that you have to die”, it states, prompting appreciation of life’s fleeting condition. Memento vivere (Latin: “Remember you have to live.”) supports the notion that life is to be celebrated. Have fun while you are here, and remember that life can start today.
