M. Annaeus Lucanus, Pharsalia (ed. Sir Edward Ridley), book 1, line 33 (search)
: et trunco non frondibus efficit umbram.' Adorned with venerable spoils, and gifts Of bygone leaders, by its weight to earth With feeble roots still clings; its naked arms And hollow trunk, though leafless, give a shade; And though condemned beneath the tempest's shock To speedy fall, amid the sturdier trees In sacred grandeur rules the forest still. No such repute had Caesar won, nor fame; But energy was his that could not rest- The only shame he knew was not to win. Keen and unvanquished,Cicero wrote thus of Caesar: 'Have you ever read or heard of a man more vigorous in action or more moderate in the use of victory than our Caesar' - Epp. ad Diversos, viii. 15. where revenge or hope Might call, resistless would he strike the blow With sword unpitying: every victory won Reaped to the full; the favour of the gods Pressed to the utmost; all that stayed his course Aimed at the summit of power, was thrust aside: Triumph his joy, though ruin marked his track. As parts the clouds a bolt

satisfy their vengeance. Decius fell, ' Crushed by the hostile ranks. When Cato falls ' Let Rhine's fierce barbarous hordes and both the hosts 'Thrust through my frame their darts! May I alone ' Receive in death the wounds of all the war! 'Thus may the people be redeemed, and thus ' Rome for her guilt pay the atonement due. ' Why should men die who wish to bear the yoke ' And shrink not from the tyranny to come? 'Strike me, and me alone, of laws and rights 'In vain the guardian: this vicarious life ' Shall give Hesperia peace and end her toils. ' Who then will reign shall find no need for war. ' You ask, Why follow Magnus? If he wins So Cicero: ' Our Cnaeus is wonderfully anxious for such a royalty as Sulla's. I who tell you know it.' (' Ep. ad Att.,' ix. 7.) ' He too will claim the Empire of the world. ' Then let him, conquering with my service, learn ' Not for himself to conquer.' Thus he spoke And stirred the blood that ran in Brutus' veins Moving the youth to action in the war.

ended: and Pharsalia's name Had so been blotted from the book of fate. But Caesar left the region where his arms Had found the deities adverse, and marched His shattered columns to Thessalian lands. Then to Pompeius came (whose mind was bent To follow Caesar wheresoe'er he fled) His captains, striving to persuade their chief To seek Ausonia, his native land, Now freed from foes. 'Ne'er will I pass,' he said, ' My country's limit, nor revisit Rome ' Like Caesar, at the head of banded hosts.So Cicero: ' Shall I, who have been called saviour of the city and father of my country, bring into it an army of Getae, Armenians, and Colchians?' ('Ep. ad Atticum,' ix., 10.) ' Hesperia when the war began was mine; ' Mine, had I chosen in our country's shrines, ' In midmost forum of her capital, ' To join the battle. So that banished far ' Be war from Rome, I'll cross the torrid zone ' Or those for ever frozen Scythian shores. What! shall my victory rob thee of the peace I gave thee by my flight? R
