About this Quote

This quote by Cicero speaks to the idea that the legacy of those who have passed away lives on in the memories of those who remain. It suggests that the life of the deceased is not truly gone, but rather is kept alive in the minds of those who knew them. This idea is especially relevant in today's world, where technology allows us to keep memories of our loved ones alive in a variety of ways. We can share stories, photos, and videos of those who have passed away, allowing us to keep their memory alive. We can also honor their legacy by continuing to do the things they loved, or by taking on their causes and passions. In this way, the life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living, and their legacy can live on.
