Julius Caesar

Gaius Julius Caesar (12 July 100 BC ā€“ 15 March 44 BC) was a Roman religious, military, and political leader. He played an important part in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. His conquest of Gaul extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, with the first Roman invasion of Britain in 55 BC. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest military geniuses of all time, as well as a brilliant politician and one of the ancient world’s strongest leaders.

About the alchemist

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn't make any sense. ~Rumi

    Interesting, esp the last one. Did Shakespeare get his dialogue (Cassius has a lean and hungry look) from real Caesar quote?

  2. I feel Caesar’s power and authority in these one-line quotes. My favorite is “The die is cast”. Poetry and power in so few words. Thanks for sharing this inspiration and history.
