that is gorgeous!  Your stitching is lovely and so perfect.  I believe your quote is a translation of a quote from Hippocrates- "Ars Longa, Vita Brevis", which is my favourite motto.  Here is an explanation.  http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/ars-longa-vita-brevis.html

Ooh, thanks for the link & extra info, that's really interesting - the site I got it from attributed it to Chaucer.
