Death takes the mean man with the proud;
The fatal urn has room for all.
For joys fall not to the rich alone, nor has he lived ill, who from birth to death has passed unknown.
Pale Death with impartial tread beats at the poor man's cottage door and at the palaces of kings.
But you, though in the very shadow of death, place contracts for cutting marble slabs, and build houses without giving a thought to your tomb.
It is not the rich man you should properly call happy, but him who knows how to use with wisdom the blessings of the gods, to endure hard poverty, and who fears dishonor worse than death, and is not afraid to die for cherished friends or fatherland.
Pale Death breaks into the cottages of the poor as into the castles of kings.
Death's dark way Must needs be trodden once, however we pause.
