“The possession of unlimited power
will make a despot of almost any man.
There is a possible Nero
in the gentlest human creature that walks.”


~ Thomas Bailey Aldrich ~

  1. “The Rome he has been trained to serve, the Rome of Augustus and Germanicus, was gone. In its place stood Neronopolis, ruled by a megalomaniac brat.” ~ James Romm (speaking of Seneca)

  2. “It’s not evil that’s ruining the earth, but mediocrity. The crime is not that Nero played while Rome burned, but that he played badly.” ~ Ned Rorem
