“But as for Lycurgus, they thought of him thus: that he was a man borne to
rule, to commaunde and to geue order, as bauing in him a certaine naturall grace
and power to drawe men willingly to obeye him."

PLUTARCH (North's Translation, 1579.)

LGA

" Who breaks his birth's invidious bar

And grasps the skirts of happier chance,

Who breasts the blows of circumstance,
And grapples with his evil star;
Who makes by force his merit known,

Who lives to clutch the golden keys,

To mould a mighty State's decrees
And shape the whisper of a throne;
And, moving up from high to higher,

Becomes on fortune's crowning slope
The pillar of a people's hope,
The centre of a world's desire.'

Texnysox, In Memoriam, lxii.
