Virgil


Known in English as Virgil or Vergil, was a Latin poet, the author of the Eclogues, the Georgics and the Aeneid, the last being an epic poem of twelve books that became the Roman Empire's national epic.
Virgil
Principio caelum ac terras camposque liquentis
Lucentemque globum Lunae Titaniaque astra
Spiritus intus alit, totamque infusa per artus
Mens agitat molem et magno se corpore miscet.
Virgil quotes
Furor, iraque mentem
Praecipitant, pulchrumque mori succurrit in armis.
Virgil
Fickle and changeable always is woman.

I was amazed, my hair stood on end, and my voice stuck in my throat.

Minuit praesentia famam.

Virgil quotes
Possunt, quia posse videntur.
Virgil
Di tibi, si qua pios respectant numina, si quid
Usquam iustitiae est et mens sibi conscia recti,
Praemia digna ferant.
Virgil
Easy is the way down to the Underworld:
by night and by day dark Disís door stands open;
but to withdraw oneís steps and to make a way out to the upper air,
thatís the task, that is the labour.
Virgil
Heu pietas, heu prisca fides.




Virgil quotes
Data fata secutus.
Virgil
Animae, quibus altera fato
Corpora debentur, Lethaei ad fluminis undam
Secures latices, et longa oblivia potant.
Virgil quotes
"Or se' tu quel Virgilio e quella fonte
che spandi di parlar s? largo fiume?",
rispuos' io lui con vergognosa fronte.

Temptanda via est, qua me quoque possim
Tollere humo victorque virum volitare per ora.

Why such great anger in those heavenly minds?
Virgil
Mens immota manet, lacrimae volvuntur inanes.

Virgil
Non ignara mali miseris succurrere disco.

Ibant obscuri sola sub nocte per umbram,
Perque domos Ditis vacuas et inania regna.
