Nero (Emperor) quotes
Finally I can live like a human being.
Nero (Emperor)
The people love Nero. He inspires in them both affection and respect. There is a reason for this which Tacitus omits. One can discern the reason for this popular feeling: Nero oppressed the great and never burdened the ordinary people. But Tacitus says nothing of this. He speaks of crimes. He speaks of them with passion. We, as a result, feel he is biased; he no longer inspires the same confidence. One is lead to believe that he exaggerates; he explains nothing and appears satisfied with vignettes.
