Ovid Quote


Picture Quote:



In the winter season, 
 For seven days of calm, Alcyone 
 Broods over her nest on the surface of the waters 
 While the sea-waves are quiet. Through this time 
 Aeolus keeps his winds at home, and ocean 
 Is smooth for his descendants' sake.  - Ovid

Quote of the day

We work in the dark — we do what we can — we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.
