John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5897
AUTHOR:Edward Everett (1794–1865)
QUOTATION:You shall not pile, with servile toil,
  Your monuments upon my breast,
Nor yet within the common soil
  Lay down the wreck of power to rest,
Where man can boast that he has trod
On him that was “the scourge of God.”
ATTRIBUTION:Alaric the Visigoth.
