In a word, it conquers all enemies, and makes fortune itself pay contribution." - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Hence he had charge of the gates of Heaven, and hence, too, all gates, Januoe, were called after him, and supposed to be under his care. Hence, perhaps, it was, that he was represented with a staff and key, and that he was named the Opener (Patulcius), and the Shutter (Clusius)." - Mary Ann Dwight
