I first read the Latin phrase MORS CERTA, VITA INCERTA not on some ancient Roman inscription, but rather in Philip K. Dick's book Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep (the basis for the movie Blade Runner).

The phrase means "death is certain; life is uncertain." I've always been struck by how this statement is so brief, yet so profound. It's what separates us from the animals: we know we are mortal and are heading toward an end. In reality, this is the only thing that is constant in life. Everything else may be predicted, but never guaranteed.

I've often suggested that MORS CERTA, VITA INCERTA would make a great epitaph on my tombstone one day--a reminder to those who remain to live life to the fullest, but never to take anything for granted.
