sic transit gloria mundi

Literally, "thus passes the glory of the world," from Latin. Used figuratively to express regretful recognition that something has or is about to end, as all things eventually do. I can't believe the university is closing down—it's nearly as old as the country! Well, sic transit gloria mundi, as the saying goes.

Nothing on earth is permanent, as in His first three novels were bestsellers and now he can't even find an agent-sic transit gloria mundi . This expression, Latin for "Thus passes the glory of the world," has been used in English since about 1600, and is familiar enough so that it is sometimes abbreviated to sic transit.
