Quintus Horatius Flaccus, born in 65 BCE, better known as Horace, is among the greatest of the Roman poets. His quotation from The Odes, Book I.11 dum loquimur, fugerit invida aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula postero, or While we speak, time has been running, seize the day, and trust as little as you may for tomorrow, reaches across the centuries to inspire us today. The symbols and names of the days of the week are another reminder that time is passing day by day.
