Veni, Vidi, Vici (I came, I saw, I conquered)
— Caesar, on his brief war with Pharnaces II
''O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
That ever lived in the tide of times.
Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!''
— Marc Antony, Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene 1
