Two quotes (songs, actually) from two movies that both reflect the transitory nature of life:

Yuki Hime: [tied to a post and awaiting execution by beheading]

That fire festival was fun. I like that song.

[pauses and then begins to sing]

The life of a man,
Burn it with the fire.
The life of an insect,
Throw it into the fire.
Ponder and you'll see,
The world is dark,
And this floating world is a dream.

-The Hidden Fortress

Aisling: [singing magic to transform a cat into mist]

You must go where I cannot,
Pangur Bán, Pangur Bán',
Níl sa saol seo ach ceo,
Is ní bheimid beo,
ach seal beag gearr.

:translation:

(You must go where I can not,
Pangur Bán, Pangur Bán',
There is nothing in this life but mist,
And we will only be alive,
for a short time.)

-The Secret of Kells
