Martial


Marcus Valerius Martialis was born sometime around 40 A D at Bilbilis, a small town in the north-east of Spain.
Martial
Ampliat aetatis spatium sibi vir bonus. Hoc est
Vivere bis vita posse priore frui.
Martial quotes
Si post fata venit gloria, non propero.
Martial
Quisquis ubique habitat, Maxime, nusquam habitat.




Martial quotes
Ride, si sapis.
Martial
Semper eris pauper, si pauper es, Aemiliane;
Dantur opes nulli nunc, nisi divitibus.
Martial quotes
Nullos esse deos, inane caelum
Adfirmat Segius: probatque, quod se
Factum, dum negat haec, videt beatum.
Martial
The bee enclosed and through the amber shown
Seems buried in the juice which was his own.
Martial quotes
I do not love thee, Sabidius, nor can I say why; this only I can say, I do not love thee.
Martial
The mode of death is sadder than death itself.
Martial
Invitas nullum nisi cum quo, Cotta, lavaris
et dant convivam balnea sola tibi
mirabar quare numquam me, Cotta, vocasses:
iam scio me nudum displicuisse tibi.
Martial
Laudant illa sed ista legunt.




Martial quotes
Difficilis facilis iucundus acerbus es idem:
Nec tecum possum vivere nec sine te.
Martial
A man who lives everywhere lives nowhere.
Martial quotes
You complain, friend Swift, of the length of my epigrams, but you yourself write nothing. Yours are shorter.
Martial
He who refuses nothing... will soon have nothing to refuse.
Martial quotes
Accipe quam primum; brevis est occasio lucri.
Martial
Neither fear your death's day nor long for it.
Martial quotes
Ardua res haec est opibus non tradere mores.
Martial
Non est, crede mihi, sapientis dicere ‘Vivam’:
Sera nimis vita est crastina: vive hodie.
Martial
Currant verba licet, manus est velocior illis; Nondum lingua suum, dextra peregit opus.
