Author Quotes

Perhaps even these things, one day, will be pleasing to remember.

Rumor flies. She nourishes the poison in her veins

Tears are due to human misery.

The goddess was discovered by her gait.

The rude rabble are enraged; now firebrands and stones fly.

They can because they think they can.

Time speeds away irretrievably

Want of pluck shows want of blood.

Whatever may happen, every kind of fortune is to be overcome by bearing it.

You, Roman, remember to rule peoples with your power.

Perhaps it will be pleasing sometime to have remembered these things.

Rumor grows as it goes.

Tell us all things from the first beginning: Grecian guile, your people's trials, and then your journeyings.

The gods thought otherwise.

The rumor grows while it has it.

They keep out of the hives the drones, an indolent bunch.

To have died once is enough.

Wars, horrid wars.

When gods are contrary they stand by no one.

Your descendants shall gather your fruits.

Perhaps it will even please us to remember these things someday.

Rumor, than which no evil flies more swiftly. She flourishes as she flies, gains strength by mere motion. Small at first and in fear, she soon rises to heaven, Walks upon land and hides her head in the clouds.

That doesn't seem like what a neighborhood would want to be known for.

The goose gabbles amid the melodious swans.

The spirit within nourishes, and mind instilled throughout the living parts activates the whole mass and mingles with the vast frame.
