Rome 2 quotes by Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux
#1. Of all the animals which fly in the air, walk on the land, or swim in the sea, from Paris to Peru, from Japan to Rome, the most foolish animal in my opinion is man. #Quote by Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux
Rome 2 quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#2. London? Paris? Berlin? Zurich? Maybe Brussels, center of the young union? They all strive to outdo one another culturally, architecturally, politically, fiscally. But Rome, it should be said, has not bothered to join the race for status. Rome doesn't compete. Rome just watches all the fussing and striving, completely unfazed, exuding an air like: 'Hey- do whatever you want, but I'm still Rome. I am inspired by the regal self-assurance of this town, so grounded and rounded, so amused and monumental, knowing that she is held securely in the palm of history. I would like to be Rome when I am an old lady. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Rome 2 quotes by Karl Marx
#3. The class-struggles of the ancient world took the form chiefly of a contest between debtors and creditors, which in Rome ended in the ruin of the plebeian debtors. They were displaced by slaves. In the middle ages the contest ended with the ruin of the feudal debtors, who lost their political power together with the economic basis on which it was established. Nevertheless, the money relation of debtor and creditor that existed at these two periods reflected only the deeper-lying antagonism between the general economic conditions of existence of the classes in question. #Quote by Karl Marx
Rome 2 quotes by Letitia Baldrige
#4. In Rome people seem to love with more zest, murder with more imagination, submit to creative urges more often, and lose the sense of logic more easily than in any other place. #Quote by Letitia Baldrige
Rome 2 quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#5. It was necessary, therefore, to Moses that he should find the people of Israel in Egypt enslaved and oppressed by the Egyptians, in order that they should be disposed to follow him so as to be delivered out of bondage. It was necessary that Romulus should not remain in Alba, and that he should be abandoned at his birth, in order that he should become King of Rome and founder of the fatherland. It #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Rome 2 quotes by Dorothea Lasky
#6. Not sure what of this you did offer me
Never did amount to anything
So with this
I go #Quote by Dorothea Lasky
Rome 2 quotes by Dorothea Lasky
#7. To get rejected so vehemently
Over and over again
Until some said it was the rejection I was after
No it wasn't
I wanted the intensity that you sometimes promised #Quote by Dorothea Lasky
Rome 2 quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#8. But Beatrice Blaine! There was a woman! Early pictures taken on her father's estate at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, or in Rome at the Sacred Heart Convent - an educational extravagance that in her youth was only for the daughters of the exceptionally wealthy - showed the exquisite delicacy of her features, the consummate art and simplicity of her clothes. A brilliant education she had - her youth passed in renaissance glory, she was versed in the latest gossip of the Older Roman Families; known by name as a fabulously wealthy American girl to Cardinal Vitori and Queen Margherita and more subtle celebrities that one must have had some culture even to have heard of. She learned in England to prefer whiskey and soda to wine, and her small talk was broadened in two senses during a winter in Vienna. All in all Beatrice O'Hara absorbed the sort of education that will be quite impossible ever again; a tutelage measured by the number of things and people one could be contemptuous of and charming about; a culture rich in all arts and traditions, barren of all ideas, in the last of those days when the great gardener clipped the inferior roses to produce one perfect bud. #Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Rome 2 quotes by Vincent De Paul
#9. When in Rome, you must do as the Romans do and accept the local customs, if they are not immoral. #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Rome 2 quotes by Richard J. Maybury
#10. Washington ... has become an alien city-state that rules America, and much of the rest of the world, in the way that Rome ruled the Roman Empire. #Quote by Richard J. Maybury
Rome 2 quotes by John Green
#11. Why had Ovid lived in Ancient Rome in 20 BCE and not Chicago in 2006 CE? Would Ovid still have been Ovid if he had lived in America? No, he wouldn't have been, because he would have been a Native American or possibly and American Indian or a First Person or an Indigenous Person, and they did not have Latin or any other kind of written language then. So did Ovid matter because he was Ovid or because he lived in ancient Rome? #Quote by John Green
Rome 2 quotes by John Milton
#12. For stories teach us, that liberty sought out of season, in a corrupt and degenerate age, brought Rome itself to a farther slavery: for liberty hath a sharp and double edge, fit only to be handled by just and virtuous men; to bad and dissolute, it becomes a mischief unwieldy in their own hands: neither is it completely given, but by them who have the happy skill to know what is grievance and unjust to a people, and how to remove it wisely; what good laws are wanting, and how to frame them substantially, that good men may enjoy the freedom which they merit, and the bad the curb which they need. #Quote by John Milton
Rome 2 quotes by Bettany Hughes
#13. In the Roman psyche the East had long been a place of danger, but also a place of plenty. The first Emperor Augustus famously said of Rome that he found a city built in brick but left it in marble – all that money had to come from somewhere. India was repeatedly described in Roman sources as a land of unimaginable wealth. Pliny the Elder complained that the Roman taste for exotic silks, perfumes and pearls consumed the city. 'India and China [and Arabia] together drain our Empire. That is the price that our luxuries and our womankind cost us.' It was the construction of the Via Egnatia and attendant road-systems that physically allowed Rome to expand eastwards, while the capture of Egypt intensified this magnetic pull. Rome had got the oriental bug, and Byzantium, entering into a truce with the Romans in 129 BC following the Roman victory in the Macedonian Wars that kick-started Gnaeus Egnatius' construction of the Via Egnatia, was a critical and vital destination before all longer Asian journeys began. #Quote by Bettany Hughes
Rome 2 quotes by Charles Dickens
#14. When you go to Rome, do as Rome does. Rome will be a ugly customer to you, if you don't. I'm your Rome, you know. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Rome 2 quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#15. How is it possible to sayan unkind or irreverential word of Rome? The city of all time, and of all the world! #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Rome 2 quotes by Joseph Franklin Rutherford
#16. The ecclesiastical system of Rome, and particularly its leaders, for a thousand years and more thought that the earth is fixed and that everything else revolves about it. #Quote by Joseph Franklin Rutherford
Rome 2 quotes by Katlyn Charlesworth
#17. The wheel of Rome spins constantly. Gods rise and fall, mortals live and die, and round and round we go. We all play a part in that wheel ... And I make sure the wheel never stops spinning. You see, if the wheel stops, balance is lost. #Quote by Katlyn Charlesworth
Rome 2 quotes by Robert Harris
#18. It is perseverance, and not genius that takes a man to the top. Rome is full of unrecognized geniuses. Only perseverance enables you to move forward in the world. #Quote by Robert Harris
Rome 2 quotes by Lucy Gordon
#19. My favourite setting is Italy, specifically Venice, because it is there that I met my husband, who is Venetian. I used it as the setting for Virtue and Vice, Enchantment in Venice, and Seduced by Innocence. Apart from Venice, my favourite city is Rome. #Quote by Lucy Gordon
Rome 2 quotes by Barry Goldwater
#20. And here we encounter the seeds of government disaster and collapse - the kind that wrecked ancient Rome and every other civilization that allowed a sociopolitical monster called the welfare state to exist. #Quote by Barry Goldwater
Rome 2 quotes by Pat Conroy
#21. The Bear had once confided to me that Durrell's ego could fit snugly in the basilica of St. Peter's in Rome but in very few other public places. This runaway megalomania marked him as a blood member of the fraternity of generals. If looks alone could make generals, Durrell would have been a cinch. He was built lean and slim and dark, like a Doberman. A man of breeding and refrigerated intelligence, he ordered his life like a table of logarithms. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Rome 2 quotes by Herman Melville
#22. Though in many natural objects, whiteness refiningly enhances beauty, as if imparting some special virtue of its own, as in marbles, japonicas, and pearls; and though various nations have in some way recognised a certain royal preeminence in this hue; even the barbaric, grand old kings of Pegu placing the title "Lord of the White Elephants" above all their other magniloquent ascriptions of dominion; and the modern kings of Siam unfurling the same snow-white quadruped in the royal standard; and the Hanoverian flag bearing the one figure of a snow-white charger; and the great Austrian Empire, Caesarian, heir to overlording Rome, having for the imperial color the same imperial hue; and though this pre-eminence in it applies to the human race itself, giving the white man ideal mastership over every dusky tribe; and though, besides, all this, whiteness has been even made significant of gladness, for among the Romans a white stone marked a joyful day; and though in other mortal sympathies and symbolizings, this same hue is made the emblem of many touching, noble things - the innocence of brides, the benignity of age; though among the Red Men of America the giving of the white belt of wampum was the deepest pledge of honor; though in many climes, whiteness typifies the majesty of Justice in the ermine of the Judge, and contributes to the daily state of kings and queens drawn by milk-white steeds; though even in the higher mysteries of the most august religions it has been made the #Quote by Herman Melville
Rome 2 quotes by Philip Yancey
#23. The apostle Paul had much to say about the immorality of individual church members, but little to say about the immorality of pagan Rome. He did not rail against the abuses in Rome - slavery, idolatry, gladiator games, political oppression, greed - even though such abuses surely offended Christians of that day every bit as much as our deteriorating society offends Christians today. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Rome 2 quotes by Carroll Quigley
#24. No slave system has ever been able to continue to function on the slaves provided by its own biological reproduction because the rate of human reproduction is too slow and the expense from infant mortality and years of unproductive upkeep of the young make this prohibitively expensive. This relationship is one of the basic causes of the American Civil War, and was even more significant in destroying ancient Rome. #Quote by Carroll Quigley
Rome 2 quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#25. From Venice to Rome, Paris to Brussels, London to Edinburgh, the Ambassadors watched, long-eared and bright-eyed.

Charles of Spain, Holy Roman Emperor, fending off Islam at Prague and Lutherism in Germany and forcing recoil from the long, sticky fingers at the Vatican, cast a considering glance at heretic England.

Henry, new King of France, tenderly conscious of the Emperor's power and hostility, felt his way thoughtfully toward a small cabal between himself, the Venetians and the Pope, and wondered how to induce Charles to give up Savoy, how to evict England from Boulogne, and how best to serve his close friend and dear relative Scotland without throwing England into the arms or the lap of the Empire.

He observed Scotland, her baby Queen, her French and widowed Queen Mother, and her Governor Arran.

He observed England, ruled by the royal uncle Somerset for the boy King Edward, aged nine.

He watched with interest as the English dotingly pursued their most cherished policy: the marriage which should painlessly annex Scotland to England and end forever the long, dangerous romance between Scotland and England.

Pensively, France marshalled its fleet and set about cultivating the Netherlands, whose harbours might be kind to storm-driven galleys. The Emperor, fretted by Scottish piracy and less busy than he had been, watched the northern skies narrowly. Europe, poised delicately over a brand-new board, waiting for th #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Rome 2 quotes by Pliny The Younger
#26. I have spent these several days past, in reading and writing, with the most pleasing tranquility imaginable. You will ask, "How that can possibly be in the midst of Rome?" It was the time of celebrating the Circensian games; an entertainment for which I have not the least taste. They have no novelty, no variety to recommend them, nothing, in short, one would wish to see twice. It does the more surprise me therefore that so many thousand people should be possessed with the childish passion of desiring so often to see a parcel of horses gallop, and men standing upright in their chariots. If, indeed, it were the swiftness of the horses, or the skill of the men that attracted them, there might be some pretence of reason for it. But it is the dress they like; it is the dress that takes their fancy. And if, in the midst of the course and contest, the different parties were to change colours, their different partisans would change sides, and instantly desert the very same men and horses whom just before they were eagerly following with their eyes, as far as they could see, and shouting out their names with all their might. Such mighty charms, such wondrous power reside in the colour of a paltry tunic! And this not only with the common crowd (more contemptible than the dress they espouse), but even with serious-thinking people. When I observe such men thus insatiably fond of so silly, so low, so uninteresting, so common an entertainment, I congratulate myself on my indifference to th #Quote by Pliny The Younger
Rome 2 quotes by Jimmy Cliff
#27. Rome was not built in a day Opposition will come your way But the harder the battle you see It's the sweeter the victory #Quote by Jimmy Cliff
Rome 2 quotes by Augusto De Luca
#28. I was born in Naples but my mother is from Rome , therefore some water from the Tiber river runs for sure in my veins. #Quote by Augusto De Luca
Rome 2 quotes by Heinz Heger
#29. This man kept us standing and waiting for a good while, while a group of eight to ten Capos gathered round us and looked us up and down… They were on the lookout for a possible lover among the new arrivals. Because I still did not have a full beard, even though nearly twenty-three, so looked younger than my years, and because I had filled out a bit again thanks to the supplementary rations from my Sachsenhausen Capo, I was obviously very much at the center of these Capos' considerations… The situation in which the five of us found ourselves seemed to me very much like a slave-boy market in ancient Rome. #Quote by Heinz Heger
Rome 2 quotes by Peter Leonard
#30. And although cars and motorcycles zipped around, all he saw was the girl coming toward him like a scene in a movie. #Quote by Peter Leonard
Rome 2 quotes by Rick Riordan
#31. I see you like to study," I said. "Well done."
Percy snorted. "I hate to study. I've been guaranteed admission with a full scholarship to New Rome University, but they're still requiring me to pass all my high school courses and score well on the SAT. Can you believe that? Not to mention I have to pass the DSTOMP."
"The what?" Meg asked.
"An exam for Roman demigods," I told her. "The Demigod Standard Test of Mad Powers."
Percy frowned. "That's what it stands for?"
"I should know. I wrote the music and poetry analysis sections."
"I will never forgive you for that," Percy said. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Rome 2 quotes by Julia Quinn
#32. He didn't know her name, didn't know anything about her except that she dreamed of Rome and smelled like violets.
And that she tasted like vanilla cream. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Rome 2 quotes by Dorothea Lasky
#33. You will realize you love me
But it will be too late

You will cry out for me
I will be long gone

This is not a wish
But what I knew to be so #Quote by Dorothea Lasky
Rome 2 quotes by Nelson DeMille
#34. Even the most radical Islamic terrorist would not want to see the revered holy city of Medina go up. It would be like losing the Vatican in Rome. #Quote by Nelson DeMille
Rome 2 quotes by Jay Crownover
#35. That is one fireball of a girlfriend you got there. The OR team was drawing straws to see who would go out and update her and your family. I think she actually had them scared. #Quote by Jay Crownover
Rome 2 quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#36. I was so happy when I went to Rome and I saw that the Romans eat them too, the squash blossoms. No wonder I like the Italians! #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Rome 2 quotes by William Butler Yeats
#37. Whence had they come The hand and lash that beat down frigid Rome? What sacred drama through her body heaved When world-transforming Charlemagne was conceived? #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Rome 2 quotes by Viktor Shel
#38. Do not make me laugh, stupid Jew." Pontius Pilate had said upon hearing Anna's explanation. "Your tribal God, Yahweh. Is a very weak God if he has allowed your people to become vassals of mighty Rome. #Quote by Viktor Shel
Rome 2 quotes by Will Rogers
#39. Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what's going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate? #Quote by Will Rogers
Rome 2 quotes by Taiye Selasi
#40. I live in Rome and five minutes from my flat is a church where you can walk in and see this beautiful Caravaggio. Just the way this man uses dark paint: dark to create dark to create dark, the layering of the darkness in his work. I just race home: I want to create! #Quote by Taiye Selasi
Rome 2 quotes by Mary Beard
#41. That raised an issue still familiar in modern electoral systems. Are Members of Parliament, for example, to be seen as delegates of the voters, bound to follow the will of their electorate? Or are they representatives, elected to exercise their own judgement in the changing circumstances of government? This was the first time, so far as we know, that this question had been explicitly raised in Rome, and it was no more easily answered then than it is now. #Quote by Mary Beard
Rome 2 quotes by Stephen Richards
#42. Now you can build Rome in a day with Cosmic Ordering. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Rome 2 quotes by Richard Siken
#43. I am singing now while Rome burns. We are all just trying to be holy. #Quote by Richard Siken
Rome 2 quotes by Samuel Sharpe
#44. Since the building of Constantinople, and the removal of the seat of government to that city, no political quarrel separated Rome from Egypt. Pagan Rome, ever since the union of the two countries under Augustus, except when interrupted by the rebellions, had been eagerly copying the superstitions of Egypt, and Christian Rome still followed the same course. #Quote by Samuel Sharpe
Rome 2 quotes by Immortal Technique
#45. When we look at these types of things it echoes to lessons we haven't learned from the past. We still don't see Rome as a negative thing; we glorify the Roman Empire. It was a fascist state under the control of an incredibly authoritarian militant pre-emptive striking genocidal regime. #Quote by Immortal Technique
Rome 2 quotes by Todd Friel
#46. Instead of beseeching men to be reconciled to God, we find ministers wasting their time in giving Sunday lectures about all kinds of subjects. Rome is burning and Nero is playing his fiddle. Souls are perishing and minsters are amusing them. #Quote by Todd Friel
Rome 2 quotes by Rick Riordan
#47. Yeah." He took one last look at the cityscape of Rome, turning bloodred in the sunset. "Festus, raise the sails. We've got some friends to save. #Quote by Rick Riordan
