"Sleep roams peacefully over the earth and the sea’s broad back and is kindly to men; but Death has a heart of iron, and his spirit within him is pitiless as bronze: whomsoever of men he has once seized he holds fast: and he is hateful even to the deathless gods."

- From Theogony by Hesiod, Hugh G. Evelyn-White trans. (via bookoflead)
