Jolo G and 74 other people liked Dolors's review of Augustus:
Augustus by John  Williams
"This is more than a lush recreation of the nuanced menace of diplomatic skirmishing and Machiavellian intrigue, public guilelessness and carnage that gave birth to the Roman Empire under the ruling of its first Emperor.

George Orwell
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
George Orwell, 1984

Richard Feynman
“I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong. If we will only allow that, as we progress, we remain unsure, we will leave opportunities for alternatives. We will not become enthusiastic for the fact, the knowledge, the absolute truth of the day, but remain always uncertain … In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the unknown ajar.”
Richard Feynman

Sam Harris
“The fact that my continuous and public rejection of Christianity does not worry me in the least should suggest to you just how inadequate I think your reasons for being a Christian are.”
Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation

Marcus Aurelius
“That which is really beautiful has no need of anything; not more than law, not more than truth, not more than benevolence or modesty.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Gore Vidal
“The unfed mind devours itself.”
Gore Vidal
