Snakes, Dust, and Tears

I’ve felt depleted this evening following a morning burst of energy. My naval gazing time was spent this evening looking at quotes. I’m tossing up between the following, which will be used in… ummm… I better wait before I make that announcement. Anyhoo:

“Sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt”

“These are the tears of things, and our mortality cuts to the heart.”

Vergil, The Aeneid

Or simply:

“Pulvis et umbra sumus.”

“We are dust and shadow.”

Horatius, Carmina

I did cheer considerably when I read on HorrorScope about New Line Cinema’s 2006 release of Snakes On A Plane movie. I love that title. I try to live by it (as a catchphrase). You’d be surprised at the number of times you can slip ‘snakes on a plane’ into a conversation, or use it at a poignant juncture to sound all-knowing.

Snakes on a plane.
