Homer (flourished c. 700 BCE)

“Grief is endurable when one weeps with an ache in the heart during the day but can at least sleep at night and forget everything, good and bad, once one’s eyelids close.”

  • The Odyssey (Book 20, approximately line 90) by Homer, translated by E. V. Rieu and edited by D. C. H. Rieu. New York: Penguin Classics, 2009.
