Alexander the Great (recorded by Arrian)


Alexander the Great (c. 356-323 BCE)

“Stand firm; for well you know that hardship and danger are the price of glory, and that sweet is the savour of a life of courage and of deathless renown beyond the grave.”

  • A quote attributed to Alexander the Great in The Campaigns of Alexander (Book 5, section 26) by the Roman/Bithynian historian Arrian, translated by Aubrey de Sélincourt and revised by J. Hamilton. New York; Penguin Classics, 1971.
