If fame is to come only after death, I am in no hurry for it.
To the ashes of the dead glory comes too late.
No hero to me is the man who, by easy shedding of his blood, purchases fame: my hero is he who, without death, can win praise.
If fame comes after death, I'm in no hurry for it.
[Lat., Si post fata venit gloria non propero.]
I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name.
[Lat., Nolo virum facili redimit qui sanquine famam;
Hunc volo laudari qui sine morte potest.]
