    "For death remember'd, should be like a mirror, Who tells us, life's but breath) to trust it, error." 


    Ugh, I hated figuring out Shakespeare in junior high. Still don't like it now. I'm probably off target but this is what I get from the quote:


    Death comes to all, when you see death, you are looking in the mirror because death will come to you at some point also. Remember it for it can come when you think that only life is to be. To trust that you can live long is an error for life could end tomorrow.
