Will droop and wither slowly, or a poppy
Bow its head upon its tired stalk
When overborne by a passing rain.“

Lifetimes are brief and not to be regained,
For all mankind. But by their deeds to make
Their fame last: that is labor for the brave.“

Stat sua cuique dies, breve et inreparabile tempus Omnibus est vitae; sed famam extendere factis, Hoc virtutis opus.
