"Be cheerful, enjoy your life" Roman dining room floor mosaic tells it like it is.

Antioch: Turkey

Turkish archaeologist Demet Kara has excavated a 2,400-year-old mosaic that features a laid-back skeleton, reclining with a cup next to a bottle of wine and loaf of bread, surrounded by the wise words: "Be cheerful, enjoy your life,".  The mosaic dates to the third century B.C. The mosaic contains the quote "Be cheerful, enjoy your life" which sums up things pretty nicely.

"Be cheerful, enjoy your life,"
