Memento mori literally translates from the Latin as “remember death” or remember that we all die, that death is inevitable. Rather than being depressing or pessimistic, its intention was to invigorate, to spur us on to make the most of each precious moment. Fritter not away your life on the trivial or by prioritizing the pursuit of base physical pleasure, but instead seek out deeper meaning, live a life of contribution, of service, of spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth and development.
