Life (Now with English Subtitles!)

"Vitaque mancipio nulli datur, omnibus usu."

- Titus Lucretius Carus (c 99-55 BCE), De Rerum Natura
Updated: Since I apparently misjudged the classical education of my readership, here is a translation of the above quote:
"Life is given no nobody, it is loaned to everyone"
-Titus Lucretius Carus, On the Nature of Things

The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
