„Then none was for a party,
Then all were for the state;
Then the rich man helped the poor,
And the poor man loved the great;
Then lands were fairly portioned,
Then spoils were fairly sold;
The Romans were like brothers
In the brave days of old“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, libro Lays of Ancient Rome

Horatius, st. 32 & 33
Lays of Ancient Rome (1842)
Contexto: p>Then none was for a party,
Then all were for the state;
Then the rich man helped the poor,
And the poor man loved the great;
Then lands were fairly portioned,
Then spoils were fairly sold;
The Romans were like brothers
In the brave days of old.Now Roman is to Roman
More hateful than a foe;
And the Tribunes beard the high
and the fathers grind the low;
As we wax hot in faction,
In battle we wax cold;
And men fight not as they fought
In the brave days of old.</p

„To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, libro Lays of Ancient Rome

Horatius, st. 26 & 27; this quote is often truncated to read:
Lays of Ancient Rome (1842)
Contexto: Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods, And for the tender mother
Who dandled him to rest,
And for the wife who nurses
His baby at her breast,
And for the holy maidens
Who feed the eternal flame,
To save them from false Sextus
That wrought the deed of shame?"

„With weeping and with laughter
Still is the story told,
How well Horatius kept the bridge
In the brave days of old.“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, libro Lays of Ancient Rome

Horatius, st. 70
Lays of Ancient Rome (1842)
Contexto: When the goodman mends his armor,
And trims his helmet's plume;
When the goodwife's shuttle merrily
Goes flashing through the loom;
With weeping and with laughter
Still is the story told,
How well Horatius kept the bridge
In the brave days of old.
