Famous quotes containing the word valerius:

    I do not like you, Sabidius; I cannot say why.
    This only can I say: I do not like you.
    —Marcus Valerius Martial (c. 40–104)

    My sweetest Lesbia let us live and love,
    And though the sager sort our deeds reprove,
    Let us not weigh them: Heav’n’s great lamps do dive
    Into their west, and straight again revive,
    But soon as once set is our little light,
    Then must we sleep one ever-during night.
    Catullus [Gaius Valerius Catullus] (84–54 B.C.)

    Ye Cupids, droop each little head,
    Nor let your wings with joy be spread:
    My Lesbia’s favourite bird is dead,
    Whom dearer than her eyes she loved.
    Catullus [Gaius Valerius Catullus] (84–54 B.C.)
