“Glory is a consequence.”
“If you build the guts to do something, anything, then you better save enough to face the consequences.”
“Glory ought to be the consequence, not the motive of our actions.”
Pliny the Younger (Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, born Gaius Caecilius or Gaius Caecilius Cilo, better known as Pliny the Younger, was a lawyer, author, and magistrate of Ancient Rome. Pliny’s uncle, Pliny the Elder, helped raise and educate him. They were both witnesses to the eruption of Vesuvius on 24 August 79 AD).
