vitai lampada..........................

Sic rerum summa novatur semper, et inter se mortales mutua vivunt.   Augescunt aliae gentes, aliae inuuntur, inque brevi spatio mutantur saecla animantum et quasi cursores vitai lampada tradiunt.
- Lucretius

translated as:
"Thus the sum of things is ever being renewed, and mortals live dependent one upon another. Some nations increase, others diminish, and in a short space the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners pass on the torch of life."
