cryptotermes brevis quotes- 4 of
Life's brief span [vitae summa brevis] forbids us to enter on far-reaching hopes.
They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate:
They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Life is short, the art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult.
