Located on 68th Street and 38th Avenue in Queens, just off the 7 Train, the text reads “What we do in life echoes in Eternity,” as a man begins to wipe it off the wall. The quote is from Maximus in Gladiator, which is a variation from the original by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor and philosopher who said “What we do now echoes in eternity.”
