Цитаты Публий Папиний Стаций
„You, whom Venus of her grace united to me in the springtime of my days, and in old age keeps mine.“
v, line 22 (tr. J. H. Mozley)
Line 521 (tr. J. H. Mozley)
„Oedipus had already probed his impious eyes with guilty hand and sunk deep his shame condemned to everlasting night; he dragged out his life in a long-drawn death. He devotes himself to darkness, and in the lowest recess of his abode he keeps his home on which the rays of heaven never look; and yet the fierce daylight of his soul flits around him with unflagging wings and the Avengers of his crimes are in his heart.“
Line 889 (tr. J. H. Mozley)
„So when ebbing Nile hides himself in his great caverns and holds in his mouth the liquid nurture of an eastern winter, the valleys smoke forsaken by the flood and gaping Egypt awaits the sounds of her watery father, until at their prayers he grants sustenance to the Pharian fields and brings on a great harvest year.“
