Living on Borrowed Time (Cicero)

Contemplations on death, pain, and grief by one of Rome’s greatest statesman and philosophers. (It’s not as depressing as it sounds.)

“But she [nature] has only lent you life, as she might lend you money, without fixing any certain time for its repayment. Have you any grounds of complaint, then, that she recalls it at her pleasure?”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
