Ars longa, vita brevis - Art is long, life is short by 

Ars longa, vita brevis is a Latin translation of an aphorism coming originally from Greek. The Latin quote is often rendered in English as Art is long, Life is short.

Art in this phrase refers to ‘craft or technique’ rather than fine art, but fits a number of situations, not only the medical context in which Hippocrates used it.

Do the work well, because life is short and perhaps you can leave your mark with your art.
