Wiki: Memento mori (Latin: "remember death") is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. In other words: a reminder to all of us to use our life the best, the most meaningful and dignified way.
