Steve Jobs: The Paths of Glory

"The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave,
Awaits alike the inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave."

Thomas Gray
 "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard"

"Si momumentum requiris circumspice"
("If you seek his monument look around you")

The epitaph of Sir Christopher Wren
