The Vanity of Glory

Published by at 1:35 pm under Vanity of Glory

Virgil in the Georgics, 2.485-486, tells us:

Rura mihi et rigui placeant in vallibus amnes, flumina amem silvasque inglorius.

Which translates as:

Let my delight be the country, and the running streams amid the dells–may I love the waters and the woods, though fame be lost.

or

May the countryside and the gliding streams content me. Lost to fame, let me love river and woodland.
