The Latin poet Claudian lived from about 370 to 404 A.D. He was born in Egypt but as an adult associated himself with the imperial court at Rome. One of his more famous works is the unfinished epic “The Rape of Proserpina” (De Raptu Proserpinae). The poem contains a short prologue which I have translated as follows:
What do all creative minds have in common? They always retain a sense of awe at the beauty, mystery, and grandeur of Nature.
Why you should never lose your quest for your ideals, and how to cultivate your sense of awe.
