Pliny the Younger on chariot racing - Pliny the Younger

This quote a été ajouté par yakimi
The races are on, a spectacle which has not the slightest attraction for me. It lacks novelty and variety. If you have seen it once, then there is nothing left for you to see. So it amazes me that thousands and thousands of grown men should act like children, wanting to look at horses running and men standing on chariots over and over again. If it was the speed of the horses or the skill of the drivers that attracted them, there would be some sense in it - but in fact it is simply the color.

I just looked up this quote thinking it was from some show or something and turns out I just learned a ton about some guy that lived in the first century AD. Awesome!
