TO KNOW THE HISTORY TO CREATE THE FUTURE

 

EVENTS AND THOUGHTS OF EVERY AGE




Souls that have lived in virtue are in general
happy, and when separated from the irrational
part of their nature, and made clean from all
matter, have communion with the gods and join
them in the governing of the whole world.
Yet even if none of this happiness fell to their lot,
virtue itself, and the joy and glory of virtue,
and the life that is subject to no grief and no
master are enough to make happy those who have
set themselves to live according to virtue
and have achieved it.

Salustius
(Praefectus Praetorio Orientis, IV century A.D.)
De diis et mundo, XXI
