virtue

There is one story
that Virtue has her dwelling place above rock walls hard to climb
with a grave chorus of light-footed nymphs attendant about her
and she is not to be looked upon by the eyes of every mortal
only by one who with sweat, with clenched concentration
and courage, climbs to the peak.

Simonides
