Memento mori (for 'remember that you [have to] die') is an artistic or symbolic trope acting as a reminder of the inevitability of death.

The Stoics of classical antiquity were particularly prominent in their use of this discipline, and Seneca's letters are full of injunctions to meditate on death. The Stoic Epictetus told his students that when kissing their child, brother, or friend, they should remind themselves that they are mortal, curbing their pleasure, as do "those who stand behind men in their triumphs and remind them that they are mortal". The Stoic, Marcus Aurelius, invited the reader (himself) to "consider how ephemeral and mean all mortal things are" in his Meditations.
