Happy Birthday to Christopher Marlowe!

Within the bowels of these elements,
Where we are tortured and remain forever.
Hell hath no limits, nor is circumscribed
In one self place, for where we are is hell,
And where hell is must we ever be.
And, to conclude, when all the world dissolves,
And every creature shall be purified,
All places shall be hell that is not heaven.
(Mephistopheles, “Dr. Faustus”)

Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris.
(Mephistopheles, “Dr. Faustus”)

~Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593)
