Translating two lines from Vincenzo Ancona poem

Post by nrepole » 16 Nov 2014, 00:45

Just wanted help translating these lines:

Nenti e’ la vita, puru di cent’anni
quannu c’un omu nun lassa ‘na storia


Many thanks

Italian: Niente è la vita, neppure di centanni, se un uomo non lascia una storia.
English: Nothing is life, not even one hundred years, if a man does not leave you a story.
