☠️ Memento Mori - Remember That You Have To Die. ☠️

Memento mori is an artistic or symbolic trope acting as a reminder of the inevitability of death.

Marcus Aurelius wrote that .........

“You could leave life right now.

Let that determine what you do and say and think.” 

💀The thought of our mortality should shadow us everywhere, giving us a sense of urgency and priority should let you cut out the inessential, it should let you decide how you’re going to treat other people and let yourself be treated, and it should determine the quality of the work that you’re going to do.

"In thinking about death, we are also thinking about life. "
