Citáty Marcus Manilius

„Jen co se zrodíme, mřeme, a konec z počátku plyne.“

Lands cease to know themselves as years roll on.
As centuries pass, e'en nations change their form,
Yet safe the world remains, with all it holds.“

—  Marcus Manilius, Astronomica

Book I, line 515, as reported in Dictionary of Quotations (classical) (1897) by T. B. Harbottle, p. 197.
