Sic Transit Gloria Mundi


The opening paragraph of chapter 31 of "Stardust," a Spenser novel by Robert B. Parker:
"I had my feet up on the windowsill in my office. Across the way they had torn down the building where Linda Thomas had once worked. I used to watch her through the window, bent over her art board, then she'd been in my life, then she'd been gone. She was still gone, and now the building was gone. Sic transit the whole caboodle."
