The Art of Love

If you haven’t come across an Ovid’s book The Art of Love then I suggest that you take it into your hands or read it on the internet, and have a good laugh while reading it. You might also find some good advice in it and some lines might make you think about love and life and also other things.
My thought after reading it: the world has not changed much in 2000 years.

The translation of the words in the picture:

Be mindful first that old age will come to you:
so don’t be timid and waste any of your time.

Have fun while it’s allowed, while your years are in their prime:
the years go by like flowing waters:

The wave that’s past can’t be recalled again,
the hour that’s past never can return.

Life’s to be used: life slips by on swift feet,
what was good at first, nothing as good will follow.
