Es, Fui Sum Eris, shorthand Latin for "What you are, I once was. What I am, you will be." This is a common phrase in Memento Mori (meaning: "remember, you will die" in Latin) jewelry, art, gravestones, and literature. Memento Mori comes from the medieval latin Christian theory that material things are meaningless as their home is in Heaven.
