MARTIAL Translated by A. S. Kline © 2006 Book II:38 A fine view You ask what I see in my farm near Nomentum, Linus? What I see in it, Linus, is: from there I can’t see you. Book III:27 Dinner invitations Though I invite you, Gallus, you never invite me back: I’d forgive you, Gallas, if you never invited a soul. You do, though: we both have faults. ‘Which?’ you ask, I’ve no sense, Gallas, and you’ve no shame. Book III:26 Possession Only you have land, then, Candidus, Gold plate, cash, and porcelain, only you, Massic or Caecuban wine of famous vintage, only you judgement and wit, only you. You have it all – well say I don’t deny it – But everyone has your wife, along with you. MARCUS AURELIUS Book 5 trans. George Long In he morning when thou risest unwillingly, let this thought be present- I am rising to the work of a human being. Why then am I dissatisfied if I am going to do the things for which I exist and for which I was brought into the world? Or have I been made for this, to lie in the bed-clothes and keep myself warm?- But this is more pleasant.- Dost thou exist

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
