What We Do in Life Echoes in Eternity
"WHAT WE DO IN LIFE ECHOES IN ETERNITY" by British-based graffiti artist Banksy.
Located in Queens, NY, 'What We Do In Life Echos In Eternity' was apparently a response to a commenters request to inspire his child. The quote comes from Maximus in the film 'Gladiator' which in turn is a variation from the original by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Empreror and philosopher who said "What we do now echoes in eternity."
The word ‘eternity’ being washed away indicates that nothing we do in life these days will actually last very long. In fact, everything is at the risk of being washed away, especially something as trivial as a street painting. Thus, perhaps all of our efforts are, ultimately, rather pointless.
