Memento, homo...

Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem revereteris

(Remember, man, you are dust and will be dust again)

I rarely go in search of motivation, and I'm usually pretty immune to any kind of motivational speech, video, or story. However, there's is always one thing that does motivate me and that's death. 

Sure, that sounds rather morbid at first. But the thought that I could die at any moment with none of my visions or missions coming to fruition, none of my passions truly acted on, not having created the change I seek to make in this world really puts my arse into gear. 

Our time on this planet is so short - we have to make it count.
