Latin Translation: nam post mortem nihil est

by Anonymous

What does nam post mortem nihil est mean?

Dear Anonymous,

It means: For after death there is nothing.

Not true, to my way of thinking. But cuique suum (to each his own).

The rest of the quote is often: et ipsa mors nihil = and death itself is nothing.

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