Calamvs Gladio Fortior


Equip a thousand mighty men
Each with unbreakable sword
To face the wordsmith in battle

And their sanguinary swords
The single pint of blood spilled
Was used to write their destiny.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
