“Tertullian in his Apologeticus tells of an ancient Roman general who assigned a servant to stand behind him whenever the crowd celebrated his exploits and remind him, ‘Respice post te! Hominem te esse memento! Memento mori!’ (‘Look behind you! Remember that you are a man! Remember that you will die!’)”
