Lucan (c. 39-65)

“The gods don’t care, they’d never stoop so low,
the Fates don’t give a damn about your life or death.
Everything follows the whims of men of action.”

  • From a speech attributed to Julius Caesar in Lucan’s Civil War (Book 5, approximately between lines 322-356), translated by Matthew Fox (Penguin Classics, 2012).
