QUOTES ON ROMANS


The Romans are at hand ... not even the descendants of the gods can resist them; for they have each man seven arms, each carrying seven spears. The blood in their veins is boiling quicksilver; and their wives become mothers in three hours, and are slain and eaten the next day.

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, Caesar and Cleopatra

Rome, that has achieved greatness only to learn how greatness destroys nations of men who are not great!

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, Caesar and Cleopatra
