Prudentius, Praefatio ad Cathemerinon librum, 28-30

Will these sorts of things, whether good or bad, be of any use following the passing of my body, when death destroys whatever it is that I once was?

“numquid talia proderunt
carnis post obitum vel bona vel mala,
cum iam, quidquid id est, quod fueram, mors aboleverit?”
