Lucretius, On the Nature of the Universe - Book 3
Nil igitur mors est ad nos neque pertinet hilum, 830
Death is therefore nothing to us, nor does it concern us a bit,
quandoquidem natura animi mortalis habetur.
seeing that the nature of the soul is proved to be mortal.
et vel ut ante acto nihil tempore sensimus aegri,
And just as in time before we felt no ill
ad confligendum venientibus undique Poenis,
when the Carthaginians were coming to fight from all directions,
omnia cum belli trepido concussa tumultu
when everything, shaken by the convulsive commotion of war,
horrida contremuere sub altis aetheris auris, 835
quaked in horror under the high breezes of heaven,
in dubioque fuere utrorum ad regna cadendum
and were in doubt about which of the two kingdoms
omnibus humanis esset terraque marique,
the whole human race must fall to, by land and by sea,
sic, ubi non erimus, cum corporis atque animai
so, when we are no more, when there has been a separation
discidium fuerit, quibus e sumus uniter apti,
of the body
