Tu mortuus es, tu nugas es.

Nil durare potest tempore perpetuo;
Cum bene sol nituit, redditur Oceano;
Decrescit Phoebe, quae modo plena fuit.
Sic Venerum feritas saepe fit aura levis.

Arma virumque!
Arma virumque cano, qui primus virumque vir

Good Luck!

You are dead, you are nothing.

Nothing can last for ever;
When the sun has shone well, it is given back to the ocean;
The moon wanes, which was just now full.
So the rage of love always turns to a puff or air.

Arms and the man!
Arms and the man, I sing, who first, and man, the man...
