Omnia mors...

406     -     407     -     408

This poem comes from the Silva distichorum moralium by François Oudin (1719).

Omnia mors finit, sed non mors omnia tollit;
Quod bene, quod contra feceris, usque manet.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There is only one word in this poem that is not on the DCC list:

fīnio -īre: limit, bound

bene: well
contrā: against, opposite (adv. and prep. +acc.)
faciō facere fēcī factum: do, make
maneō manēre mānsī mānsum: remain
mors mortis f.: death
nōn: not
omnis -e: all, every, as a whole
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
sed: but
tollō tollere sustulī sublātum: raise up, destroy
ūsque: up to; continuously
