Memento Mori Skull Badge
“You could leave life right now,” Marcus Aurelius stated in Meditations. Let that guide your actions, words, and thoughts.” That was a personal reminder to continue living a virtue-filled life now, rather than later.
The Latin phrase Memento Mori means “remember you must die.” A skull is a typical Memento Mori symbol. The statement is thought to have originated in ancient Rome, where slaves following generals on victory parades muttered the words as a reminder of mortality.
