'No day shall erase you from the memory of time'

This quotation is taken from the epic poem The Aeneid by Virgil, written between 29 and 19BC. It is a translation from the original latin. I believe that it has been chosen to be inscribed on a wall at the memorial 9/11 site in New York.

A lot of the quotations I choose to work with, relate to the passing of time, something which most of us find unsettling, but which we all have to face.

This quotation seems majestic and almost spiritual in tone and has such a defiant note of certainty.
