As I look to the future, I also root myself the ancient past by introducing this publication with quote, chosen at random, from Virgil's Aeneid. My interpretation will yield an unbidden gift from this quote, which I will choose to carry with me for the life of the publication:
"In victory Hercules
Bent for this lintel, and these royal rooms
Were grand enough for him. Friend, have the courage
To care little for wealth, and shape yourself,
You too, to merit godhead. Do not come
Disdainfully into our needy home."
Virgil., & Fitzgerald, R. (1983). The Aeneid. New York: Random House. Book VIII, line 480.
