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,' the epicure would say,
`And seize the pleasures of the present day.'
`Live, while you live,' 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.
Source: Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, E. Cobham Brewer, 1894
