Dum Vivimus, Vivamus (Latin)

.

While we live, let us enjoy life. The motto of Dr. Doddridge’s coat of arms, which he converted into the subjoined epigram—        

“‘Live, while you live,ʹ the epicure would say.

‘And seize the pleasures of the present day

Live, while you live,ʹ the sacred preacher cries,

‘And give to God each moment as it flies

Lord, in my views let each united be;

I live in pleasure, when I live to thee.”
