Famous quotes containing the word roman:

    It is a dogma of the Roman Church that the existence of God can be proved by natural reason. Now this dogma would make it impossible for me to be a Roman Catholic. If I thought of God as another being like myself, outside myself, only infinitely more powerful, then I would regard it as my duty to defy him.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    The gale, it plies the saplings double,
    It blows so hard, ‘twill soon be gone:
    To-day the Roman and his trouble
    Are ashes under Uricon.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    How can I, that girl standing there,
    My attention fix
    On Roman or on Russian
    Or on Spanish politics?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
