Memento mori—remember death!
These are important words. If we kept in mind that we will soon inevitably die, our lives would be completely different. If a person knows that he will die in a half hour, he certainly will not bother doing trivial, stupid, or, especially, bad things during this half hour. Perhaps you have half a century before you die—what makes this any different from a half hour?
These words ring so profound to me.
They are not to be feared, they are an affirmation of life.
Savor every moment.
