Such is life

Posted by Victoria Mathis on January 05, 2011 at 14:25

The phrase, "Such is life" is intresting. I've read it orgionated in France, that it comes from Ned Kelly's last words in Australila and that it's part of a saying from London's war years. Recently, I've seen it on Victorian wax impression rings with a ship. It's also found on what resemble/are religous medals also with a ship in the center of the words. My question is, What is the connection between the ship and the words, "Such is Life"?
