The Muses are the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts in Greek mythology. They were considered the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, lyric songs, and myths that were related orally for centuries in these ancient cultures. They were later adopted by the Romans as a part of their pantheon. In current English usage, “muse” can refer in general to a person who inspires an artist, writer, or musician.”

Ό,τι αρχίζει, θα τελειώσει. Ό,τι δεν αρχίσει δεν θα τελειώσει και ποτέ. Έρωτας δεν είναι μόνο ό,τι εκπληρώθηκε- είναι και ό,τι πόθησες. Ίσως γι’ αυτό μας τρώνε για πάντα οι ανεκπλήρωτοι έρωτες. Δεν πεθαίνουν γιατί δεν κατάφεραν να γεννηθούν.
- Κωνσταντίνος Π. Καβάφης

Η πιο όμορφη θάλασσα, είναι αυτή που δεν έχουμε ταξιδέψει ακόμα
Τις πιο όμορφες μέρες μας, δεν τις έχουμε ζήσει ακόμα
Κι αυτο που θέλω να σου πω,
το πιο όμορφο απ'ολα,
Δεν στο'χω πει ακόμα
