Latin Language

Dear Latin Teacher,

How can we say "There is no death" in Latin? I've searched everywhere and still there seems to have no phrase for this sentence with equal meaning.

Thanks in advance. Marcus

Dear Marcus,

The literal Latin phrase for "There is no death" is est nulla mors.

Then again, your phrase might really be trying to say that death is not the end of experience. In that case, you might try Mors non finis, or "death is not an end".

There is no death! What seems so is transition.

This life of mortal breath

Is but a suburb of the life Elysian

Whose portals we call death.

Henry Wordsworth Longfellow

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
