Considered the greatest poet of ancient Rome, Virgil is best known for his epic poem “The Aeneid,” where this quote originates. In this section, the titular Trojan hero Aeneas meets the Sibyl, a guide to the underworld. She gives Aeneas guidance on his journey and reassures him that despite past setbacks, he will eventually fulfill his destiny of finding a new home for the Trojan people. Thousands of years later, we can still take the Sibyl’s words as encouragement to meet challenges head-on. When we face difficulties instead of avoiding them, we’re more likely to learn something and be able to move forward.
