Virgil (Roman Poet, 70-19 BCE)

“Night and day the gates of shadowy Death stand open wide,
but to retrace your steps, to climb back to the upper air–
there the struggle, there the labor lies.”

  • From The Aeneid (Book VI, approximately line 150) by Virgil, translated by Robert Fagles (Penguin Classics, 2010).
