Caligula Quotes

“Mister Cameron – I have read the unexpurgated Ovid, the love poems of Sappho, the Decameron in the original, and a great many texts in Greek and Latin histories that were not though fit for proper gentlemen to read, much less proper ladies. I know in precise detail what Caligula did to, and with, his sisters, and I can quote it to you in Latin or in my own translation if you wish. I am interested in historical truth, and truth in history is often unpleasant and distasteful to those of fine sensibility. I frankly doubt that you will produce anything to shock me. ”
― Mercedes Lackey, The Fire Rose
  • “Against eternal injustice, man must assert justice, and to protest against the universe of grief, he must create happiness.”
    ― Albert Camus
  • “Most people imagine that a man suffers because out of the blue, Death snatches away the woman he loves. But his real suffering is less futile; it comes from the discovery that grief, too, cannot last. Even grief is vanity!”
    ― Albert Camus, Caligula
  • “That the crowd always likes a holiday is a common saying, but when the whole year becomes one long holiday, and nobody has time for attending to his business, and pleasure becomes compulsory, then it is a different matter.”
    ― Robert Graves, I, Claudius
  • “So much for the Emperor; the rest of this history must deal with the Monster.
    —IV:22”
    ― Suetonius, The Twelve Caesars
  • “But is life really worth so much? Let us examine this; it’s a different inquiry. We will offer no solace for so desolate a prison house; we will encourage no one to endure the overlordship of butchers. We shall rather show that in every kind of slavery, the road of freedom lies open. I will say to the man to whom it befell to have a king shoot arrows at his dear ones [Prexaspes], and to him whose master makes fathers banquet on their sons’ guts [Harpagus]: ‘What are you groaning for, fool?… Everywhere you look you find an end to your sufferings. You see that steep drop-off? It leads down to freedom. You see that ocean, that river, that well? Freedom lies at its bottom. You see that short, shriveled, bare tree? Freedom hangs from it…. You ask, what is the path to freedom? Any vein in your body.”
    ― Seneca, Dying Every Day: Seneca at the Court of Nero
  • “This young woman,” said Diana, “was responsible for the destruction of the Triumvirate’s fleet.”
    “Well, I had a lot of help,” Lavinia said.
    “I don’t understand,” I said, turning to Lavinia. “You made all those mortars malfunction?”
    Lavinia looked offended. “Well, yeah. Somebody had to stop the fleet. I did pay attention during siege-weapon class and ship-boarding class. It wasn’t that hard. All it took was a little fancy footwork.”
    Hazel finally managed to pick her jaw off the pavement. “Wasn’t that hard?”
    “We were motivated! The fauns and dryads did great.” She paused, her expression momentarily clouding, as if she remembered something unpleasant. “Um…besides, the Nereids helped a lot. There was only a skeleton crew aboard each yacht. Not, like, actual skeletons, but—you know what I mean. Also, look!”
    She pointed proudly at her feet, which were now adorned with the shoes of Terpsichore from Caligula’s private collection.
    “You mounted an amphibious assault on an enemy fleet,” I said, “for a pair of shoes.”
    Lavinia huffed. “Not just for the shoes, obviously.” She tap-danced a routine that would’ve made Savion Glover proud. “Also to save the camp, and the nature spirits, and Michael Kahale’s commandos.”
    Hazel held up her hands to stop the overflow of information. “Wait. Not to be a killjoy—I mean, you did an amazing thing!—but you still deserted your post, Lavinia. I certainly didn’t give you permission —”
    “I was acting on praetor’s orders,” Lavinia said haughtily. “In fact, Reyna helped. She was knocked out for a while, healing, but she woke up in time to instill us with the power of Bellona, right before we boarded those ships. Made us all strong and stealthy and stuff.”
    Hazel asked, “Is it true about Lavinia acting on your orders?”
    Reyna glanced at our pink-haired friend. The praetor’s pained expression said something like, I respect you a lot, but I also hate you for being right.
    “Yes,” Reyna managed to say. “Plan L was my idea. Lavinia and her friends acted on my orders. They performed heroically.”
    Lavinia beamed. “See? I told you.”
    The assembled crowd murmured in amazement, as if, after a day full of wonders, they had finally witnessed something that could not be explained.”
    ― Rick Riordan, The Tyrant’s Tomb
  • “Caligula wished that the Roman people had but one neck that he might cut it off, and as I read this letter I am afraid that for a moment I was capable of wishing the same thing concerning the laboring class of America.”

    ― David Wishart, Finished Business
  • “As for Gaius, he has no more chance of becoming emperor than of riding a horse dry-shod across the Gulf of Baiae.”
    ― Suetonius
  • “So this is the boom, eh?” I said. “Not exactly Scott Fitzgerald, is it?” “I’ll tell you what it’s like,” he said glumly. “It’s like being in Caligula’s Rome, and everyone around you’s having an orgy, and you’re the mug stuck looking after the horse.” He pulled heavily on his cigarette. “The whole thing’ll come crashing down,” he said bleakly, “and all anyone’ll have done is eaten a lot of expensive cheese.”
    ― Paul Murray

 

  • “Cesonia (Erguida ante él y con voz suplicante.): Existe lo bueno y lo malo, lo alto y lo bajo, lo justo y lo injusto. Te juro que nada de eso cambiará.

    Calígula (Con el mismo tono.): Pues yo deseo cambiarlo. Quiero concederle a este siglo la igualdad. Y cuando todo esté nivelado, cuando lo imposible reine por fin en este mundo, cuando tenga la luna en mis manos, entonces tal vez yo mismo me transforme, y el mundo conmigo; entonces por fin los hombres no morirán y serán felices.”
    ― Albert Camus, Caligula

    now makes me tremble at your right to live.”
    ― Robert Lowell, For the Union Dead
  • “Maybe he was not quite what he seemed to be…handsome, brilliant, and….
    Crazy?
    Like the Roman Emperors Caligula and Nero?
    – Amazon Lee and the Ancient Undead of Rome by Kira G. and Kailin Gow”
    ― Kailin Gow, Kira G.
