Idiom of the week!

Life is short and art is long


The familiar Latin translation of Hippocrates’ “Ars longa, vita brevis” reverses the order of the original lines. In English, the whole aphorism reads:

Life is short,
and art long,
opportunity fleeting,
experimentations perilous,
and judgment difficult.

It commonly refers to how time limits our accomplishments in life.
