NNudus ut intravi mundum, sic nudus abibo; ut nihil intuleram, sic nihil inde feram.

German.png German translation

Wie ich nackt die Erde betrat, so werde ich sie nackt verlassen; wie ich nichts hineingetragen habe, so werde ich nichts heraustragen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

As I entered the world naked, so I will leave it naked; as I didn’t bring in anything with me, so I will not take out anything.
