CVSTODES ouium tenerae propaginis, agnum,
quaeritis ignem? ite huc. quaeritis? ignis homost.

si digito attigero, incendam siluam simul omnem,

omne pecus flammast, omnia qua uideo.

Guardians of the tender sheep & lamb of the race,
you seek the fire? Come here. You seek? The fire is Man.
If I will touch with a finger, I will set the wood, & the world, aflame,
all the herd is a flame, all that I see.

Ignis Homo Est, Porcius Licinus, ca. 100 B.C.
