Lucretius c.94 - 55 BC

So much wrong could religion induce.

Nothing can be created out of nothing.

And in a short while the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners relay the torch of life.

Lovely it is, when the winds are churning up the waves on the great sea, to gaze out from the land on the great efforts of someone else.

The greatest wealth is to live content with little, for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.

From the heart of the fountain of delight rises a jet of bitterness that tortures us among the very flowers.

From the very fountain of enchantment there arises a taste of bitterness to spread anguish amongst the flowers.

Nothing can be created out of nothing

Such are the heights of wickedness to which men are driven by religion.

Fear was the first thing on earth to make gods

The greatest wealth is to live content with little, for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.

It is pleasurable, when winds disturb the waves of a great sea, to gaze out from land upon the great trials of another

Victory puts us on a level with heaven.

Deprived of pain, and also deprived of danger, able to do what it wants, (Nature) does not need us, nor understands our deserts, and it cannot be angry

Pleasant it to behold great encounters of warfare arrayed over the plains, with no part of yours in peril.

The generations of living things pass in a short time, and like runners hand on the torch of life

The sum of all sums is eternity.

In the midst of the fountain of wit there arises something bitter, which stings in the very flowers.

What is food to one man is bitter poison to others.

What once sprung from the earth sinks back into the earth

Do you not see even stones yield to the power of time, lofty towers fall to decay, and the rocks molder away? Temples and statues of the gods go to ruin, nor can the gods themselves prolong their date or get reprieve from fate
