The Speech of Pyrrhus
 
Quintus Ennius (239–169? B.C.)
 
 
NEC mi aurum posco nec mi pretium dederitis:
non cauponantes bellum sed belligerantes,
ferro, non auro, uitam cernamus utrique,
uosne uelit an me regnare era quidue ferat Fors

quorum uirtuti belli fortuna pepercit,
corundem libertati me parcere certum est.
dono, ducite, doque uolentibus cum magnis dis.
