When times are tough…

‘ὦ φίλοι, οὐ γάρ πω καταδυσόμεθ᾿ ἀχνύμενοί περ

εἰς Ἀίδαο δόμους, πρὶν μόρσιμον ἦμαρ ἐπέλθῃ·

ἀλλ᾿ ἄγετ᾿, ὄφρ᾿ ἐν νηὶ θοῇ βρῶσίς τε πόσις τε,

μνησόμεθα βρώμης, μηδὲ τρυχώμεθα λιμῷ.’

                                                     ΟΔΥΣΣΕΙΑ Κ 174


‘Friends, not yet shall we go down to the house of Hades, despite our sorrows,

before the day of fate comes upon us.

No, come, while there is still food and drink in our swift ship,

let us take thought of food, and not waste away from hunger.’

                                                                                      Odyssey, Book X, 174


Odysseus by his ship


Let us live…enjoy your life.
