Publius Cornelius Tacitus

Publius Cornelius Tacitus

was a senator and a historian of the Roman Empire
To rob, to ravage, to murder, in their imposing language, are the arts of civil policy. When they have made the world a solitude, they call it peace.
[Lat., Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium, atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant.] /murder/ Publius Cornelius Tacitus quotes
