Endure, and keep yourselves for days of happiness.

Separator icon

Publius Vergilius Maro, better known as Virgil, was an ancient Roman poet and a true heavyweight when it comes to quotability. His three major poems — the “Eclogues,” the “Georgics,” and the epic “Aeneid” — gave us many popular phrases, including “time flies,” “love conquers all,” and “fortune favors the bold.” His most famous poem, the “Aeneid,” tells the tale of Aeneas, a Trojan who escaped the fall of Troy before — to cut a very long story short — making his way to Italy to ultimately become the ancestor of the Romans. Aeneas speaks the line, “Endure, and keep yourselves for days of happiness,” in an effort to encourage his men after a series of encounters with monsters, whirlpools, and storms. Like so many of Virgil’s lines, it’s a beautiful and timeless sentiment, a call to hold out hope and persist in the face of challenges.
