milosrdenstvi commented on the word nunc lento sonitu dicunt morieris
From John Donne's Meditation XVII. Translated loosely: "Now this bell, tolling softly for another, says to me, Thou must die."
This Meditation also contains the famous phrases "No man is an island" and "Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."
