Every possession and every happiness is but lent by chance for an uncertain time, and may therefore be demanded back the next hour.

Arthur Schopenhauer



I believe Schopenhauer must have read Horace. His thought here lacks the brevity of “Carpe Diem”, but is essentially the same thing.
“Life is short; make the most of it!” and “Be prepared for change, as nothing is forever.”
