Famous quotes containing the words latin and/or emperors:

    Where liberty dwells there is my country.
    —Anonymous. Latin phrase.

    Adopted as a motto by U.S. patriot and orator James Otis (1725-1783)

    How does Nature deify us with a few and cheap elements! Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous. The dawn is my Assyria; the sun-set and moon-rise my Paphos, and unimaginable realms of faerie; broad noon shall be my England of the senses and the understanding; the night shall be my Germany of mystic philosophy and dreams.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
