“Vitae Summa Brevis”

 “They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate:
I think they have no portion in us after
We pass the gate.
They are not long, the days of wine and roses;
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.”

- Ernest Dowson

“Vitae summa brevis spem nos vetat incohare longam” is a quotation from Horace’s
“First Book of Odes”: “The shortness of life prevents us from entertaining far-off hopes.”
