Lewis Morris
From Antoninus Pius

All his soul
Was filled with love of peace, holding it more
To save a single citizen than slay
A thousand enemies. A thrifty mind
Grudging his people’s toil, not less he planned
Great works and beautiful, which might enrich
The City of the world, and, loving peace,
Yet not the less the reverence for his name
Spread to earth’s limits.
