Non Omnis Mourir:

I have created a monument more lasting than bronze,

And higher than the royal site of the pyramids

Which neither harsh rains nor the wild north wind

Can erode, nor the countless succession of years

And the flight of the seasons.

I will not entirely die! and a large part of me will avoid the grave.

Constantly renewed, I will grow in the eyes of posterity.


Horace. Odes, Bk III, xx
