    Nothing is uglier than the sinner, nothing so leprous or fetid; the scar of his crimes is still raw, and he stinks like the cave of Hell.
    —Aurelius Clemens Prudentius (c. 348–405)

    And so we ask for peace for the gods of our fathers, for the gods of our native land. It is reasonable that whatever each of us worships is really to be considered one and the same.

Not by one avenue only can we arrive at so tremendous a secret.
    —Quintus Aurelius Symmachus (A.D. c. 340–402)
