Marcus Manilius quotes- 4 of
All things by human laws created change:
Lands to each other known, in time grow strange:
Man know thy powers, and not observe thy size,
The noble power in piercing reason lies,
Who can wonder that the world is known
So well by man, since himself is one?
Divining arts, and stars foreknowing fate
Varying the diverse turns of human state
