Take The Dante's Inferno Test!
Since I'm forever consigning myself to the 9th Circle, I was pleasantly surprised to find I only qualify for Level 1: Limbo
Hmm...a virtuous pagan illuminated by the light of reason. Sounds good to me.
Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief's abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, whereabout many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, unbaptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad.
I liked the part about "the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad." I've had a lot of days like this right here on earth.
So instead of saying, "My life is a hell on earth," it would be more accurate for me to say, "My life is a Limbo on earth."
