The Aeneid of Virgil (1971)[edit]

  • But yours will be the rulership of nations,
    remember Roman, these will be your arts:
    to teach the ways of peace to those you conquer,
    to spare defeated peoples, tame the proud.
    • Book VI, lines 1134–1137
  • Euryalus, is it
    the gods who put this fire in our minds,
    or is it that each man's relentless longing
    becomes a god to him?
    • Book IX, lines 243–246
