Livy (59 BCE-17 CE)

“A man will work hard and face risks when he can hope for profit and place as a result, and he will shrink from nothing if only he know that the reward is likely to be worthy of the attempt.”

  • The History of Rome (Book 4, section 35) by Livy, translated by Aubrey de Sélincourt. New York: Penguin Classics, 2002.
