Famous quotes containing the word roman:

    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)

    I cannot call Riches better than the baggage of virtue. The Roman word is better, impedimenta. For as the baggage is to an army, so is riches to virtue. It cannot be spared nor left behind, but it hindereth the march; yea and the care of it sometimes loseth or disturbeth the victory.
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

    Ce corps qui s’appelait et qui s’appelle encore le saint empire romain n’était en aucune manière ni saint, ni romain, ni empire. This agglomeration which called itself and still calls itself the Holy Roman Empire was in no way holy, nor Roman, nor an empire.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
