Ἑκὼν σεαυτὸν τῇ Κλωθοῖ συνεπιδίδου παρέχων συννῆσαι οἷστισί ποτε πράγμασι βούλεται. Πᾶν ἐφήμερον, καὶ τὸ μνημονεῦον καὶ τὸ μνημονευόμενον -> Be willing to give yourself up to Clotho, letting her spin to whatever ends she pleases. All is ephemeral—both memory and the object of memory (Marcus Aurelius 4.34f.)

Πᾶν ἐφήμερον, καὶ τὸ μνημονεῦον καὶ τὸ μνημονευόμενον. -> All is ephemeral — fame and the famous as well.
