Crassus And Pompey quotes by Ted Hughes

The bright mirror I braved: the devil in it
Loved me like my soul, my soul:
Now that I seek myself in a serpent
My smile is fatal.

Nile moves in me; my thighs splay
Into the squalled Mediterranean;
My brain hides in that Abyssinia
Lost armies foundered towards.

Desert and river unwrinkle again.
Seeming to bring them the waters that make drunk
Caesar, Pompey, Antony I drank.
Now let the snake reign.

A half-deity out of Capricorn,
This rigid Augustus mounts
With his sword virginal indeed; and has shorn
Summarily the moon-horned river

From my bed. May the moon
Ruin him with virginity! Drink me, now, whole
With coiled Egypt's past; then from my delta
Swim like a fish toward Rome. #Quote by Ted Hughes
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Steven Saylor
#2. Men like Caesar and Pompey
they're not heroes, Meto. They're monsters. They call their greed and ambition "honour," and to satisfy their so-called honour they'll tear the world apart. But who am I to judge them? Every man does what he must, to protect his share of the world. What's the difference between killing whole villages and armies, and killing a single man? Caesar's reasons and mine are different only in degree. The consequences and the suffering still spread to the innocent (Gordianus the Finder to his son Meto) #Quote by Steven Saylor
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Sextus Julius Frontinus
#3. When Marcus Crassus had constructed a ditch around the forces of Spartacus, the latter at night filled it with the boddies of prisoners and cattle that he had slain, and thus marched across it. #Quote by Sextus Julius Frontinus
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Plutarch
#4. ... man by nature is not a wild or unsocial creature, neither was he born so, but makes himself what he naturally is not, by vicious habit; and that again on the other side, he is civilized and grows gentle by a change of place, occupation, and manner of life, as beasts themselves that are wild by nature, become tame and tractable by housing and gentler usage... #Quote by Plutarch
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Beatrice Crassus
#5. Everyone is busy in just trying to get through each day and make a brighter future. #Quote by Beatrice Crassus
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Plutarch
#6. Pompey had fought brilliantly and in the end routed Caesar's whole force ... but either he was unable to or else he feared to push on. Caesar [said] to his friends: 'Today the enemy would have won, if they had had a commander who was a winner. #Quote by Plutarch
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Marcus Crassus
#7. You believe wealth and position grant you advantage over those beneath you? #Quote by Marcus Crassus
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#8. The average American worker enjoys amenities for which Croesus, Crassus, the Medici, and Louis XIV would have envied him. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Crassus And Pompey quotes by William Shakespeare
#9. No more light answers. Let our officers
Have note what we purpose. I shall break
The cause of our expedience to the Queen
And get her leave to part. For not alone
The death of Fulvia, with more urgent touches,
Do strongly speak to us, but the letters too
Of many our contriving friends in Rome
Petition us at home. Sextus Pompeius
Hath given the dare to Caesar and commands
The empire of the sea. Our slippery people,
Whose love is never linked to the deserver
Till his deserts are past, begin to throw
Pompey the Great and all his dignities
Upon his son, who - high in name and power,
Higher than both in blood and life - stands up
For the main soldier; whose quality, going on,
The sides o' th' world may danger. Much is breeding
Which, like the courser's hair, hath yet but life
And not a serpent's poison. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Joseph Addison
#10. Great Pompey's shade complains that we are slow, And Scipio's ghost walks unaveng'd amongst us! #Quote by Joseph Addison
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Tim Pompey
#11. I believe writing fiction is the mystical experience that allows me to break free of my human bonds, those so-called chains of thought, and create magic. #Quote by Tim Pompey
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Marcus Licinius Crassus
#12. My taste includes both snails and oysters. #Quote by Marcus Licinius Crassus
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#13. I feel a much greater interest in knowing what has passed two or three thousand years ago, than in what is now passing. I read nothing, therefore, but of the heroes of Troy, ... of Pompey and Caesar, and of Augustus too. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Chuck Wendig
#14. Humility is well and good but facts persevere beyond the shadow of one's own feelings," Ackbar says. "You saved Captain Antilles. You helped us capture two high-value Imperial targets - General Jylia Shale, and Palpatine's adviser Yupe Tashu - and confirm the deaths of two others: Moff Valco Pandion and slaver Arsin Crassus." The way Ackbar says that word slaver - it drips with rage and condescension. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Plutarch
#15. That which is chiefly the office of a general, to force the enemy into fighting when he finds himself the stronger, and to avoid being driven into it himself when he is the weaker... #Quote by Plutarch
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Albert Camus
#16. During the battle, Spartacus himself tried with frenzied
determination, the symbolism of which is obvious, to reach Crassus, who was commanding the Roman
legions. He wanted to perish, but in single combat with the man who symbolized, at that moment, every
Roman master; it was his dearest wish to die, but in absolute equality. He did not reach Crassus:
principles wage war at a distance and the Roman general kept himself apart. Spartacus died, as he wished,
but at the hands of mercenaries, slaves like himself, who killed their own freedom with his. In revenge for
the one crucified citizen, Crassus crucified thousands of slaves. The six thousand crosses which, after
such a just rebellion, staked out the road from Capua to Rome demonstrated to the servile crowd that
there is no equality in the world of power and that the masters calculate, at a usurious rate, the price of
their own blood. #Quote by Albert Camus
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Thomas More
#17. Thus all consent to that maxim of Crassus, that a prince cannot have treasure enough, since he must maintain his armies out of it; that a king, even though he would, can do nothing unjustly; that all property is in him, not excepting the very persons of his subjects; and that no man has any other property but that which the king, out of his goodness, thinks fit to leave him. And they think it is the prince's interest that there be as little of this left as may be, as if it were his advantage that his people should have neither riches nor liberty, since these things make them less easy and willing to submit to a cruel and unjust government. Whereas necessity and poverty blunts them, makes them patient, beats them down, and breaks that height of spirit that might otherwise dispose them to rebel. #Quote by Thomas More
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Plutarch
#18. Pompey bade Sylla recollect that more worshipped the rising than the setting sun. #Quote by Plutarch
Crassus And Pompey quotes by Theodor Mommsen
#19. Marcus Crassus cannot, any more than Pompeius, be reckoned among the unconditional adherents of the oligarchy. #Quote by Theodor Mommsen
