Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. Quote
The god looked out upon the troubled deep
Waked into tumult from its placid sleep;
The flame of anger kindles in his eye
As the wild waves ascend the lowering sky;
He lifts his head above their awful height
And to the distant fleet directs his sight.
"Translation From The Æneid, Book I" written while at Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts (c. 1824).
