A Quote from Ovid

Short and sweet today - Here's a quote for the day:

"Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish."– Ovid

"Publius Ovidius Naso, the Roman poet known as Ovid, best known for the epic Metamorphoses, is considered one of the greatest poets of Latin literature. He was born in 43 B.C. in what is now Italy. He rose quickly in Roman government and was on track to become a senator when he chose to devote himself to poetry instead. His tale of Pyramus and Thisbe is the source for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Emperor Augustus exiled Ovid from Rome for unknown reasons in 8 A.D.; he died in exile in 17 A.D. " as quoted from the Today's Inspiration newsletter, Everyday Health Network.
