CaesarThe Hall of Immortals

In every field of endeavor, there are a chosen few who stand taller and see farther than the rest.

They are the visionaries. They are the heroes. They walk among us, fashioning dreams, oblivious to an often uncaring world.

We cannot hope to become as they are. But we can view their works. We can experience their legacies. And we can remember:

"No one who builds a palace out of mud is ever completely forgotten."
