„I am not carrying on a war of extermination against the Romans. I am contending for honour and empire. My ancestors yielded to Roman valour. I am endeavouring that others, in their turn, will be obliged to yield to my good fortune, and my valour.“

—  Hannibal, As quoted in Hannibal : Enemy of Rome (1992) by Leonard Cottrell, p. 150.

More searching tests of valour, be it said,
Than grace and style; and fortune too is needed,
Without which valour seldom has succeeded.“

„My voice is still for war.
Gods! Can a Roman senate long debate
Which of the two to choose, slavery or death?“

—  Joseph Addison, kniha Cato
Cato, A Tragedy (1713), Context: My voice is still for war. Gods! Can a Roman senate long debate Which of the two to choose, slavery or death? No, let us rise at once, Gird on our swords, and, At the head of our remaining troops, attack the foe, Break through the thick array of his throng'd legions, And charge home upon him. Perhaps some arm, more lucky than the rest, May reach his heart, and free the world from bondage. Act II, scene i.
