Quotes: The Roman Republic
For Romans in Rome's quarrel spared neither land nor gold
Nor son nor wife nor limb nor life in the brave days of old
Then none was for a party; then all were for the state
Then the great man helped the poor, and the poor man loved the great
Then lands were fairly portioned and spoils were fairly sold
The Romans were like brothers in the brave days of old
Lays of Ancient Rome by Sir Thomas Macauley

"It's simple: the Praetor's like a mayor, quaestors are judges, and the censor does the census and bans smut..."
Larry Gonick on the structure of Roman Republican government, Cartoon History of the Universe
