    Default Old Age

    By Anacreon #395

    Ah youth, why did you flee, you flee
    We were such friends not long ago
    Grey hairs about my temples grow
    And ragged are the teeth you see

    How little time is left, is left
    For me to savor life's sweet joy
    All ends in death, gone is the boy
    Of all I was I am bereft

    So dark the grave, so deep, so deep
    Untrodden yet the dismal track
    And none shall find their lost way back
    Or wake again from that night's sleep

    Default All Roads go to Hades

    Antipater of Sidon

    The way to hell is straight,
    Whether from Athens or Meroe.
    Fear not to die away from home
    All roads to Hades go.
