Livy (circa 59 B.C.E. — 17 A.D.), also known as Titus Livius, was a Roman author and historian. Very little is recorded about his life, which began in northern Italy. He grew up during a time of civil war, and was educated in rhetoric and philosophy. Livy spent much of his life in Rome, where he composed his life’s work, History of Rome, which became a classic in his own lifetime.
Quotes by Livy…
The worst kind of shame is being ashamed of frugality or poverty.
Apprehensions are greater in proportion as things are unknown.
