==Dea Fortuna==
<blockquote>[S]wift is the pace of Fortune, bold is her spirit, and most vaunting her hopes; she outstrips Virtue and is close at hand. She does not raise herself in the air on light pinions, nor advance "poised on tip-toe above a globe," in precarious and hesitant posture, and then depart from sight. But even as the Spartans say that Aphroditê, as she crossed the Eurotas, put aside her mirrors and ornaments and her magic girdle, and took a spear and shield, adorning herself to please Lycurgus, even so Fortuna, ... when she was approaching the Palatine and crossing the Tiber, it appears that she took off her wings, stepped out of her sandals, and abandoned her untrustworthy and unstable globe. Thus did she enter Rome, as with intent to abide, and in such guise is she present to‑day... - [[Plutarch]]</blockquote>
:O diva, gratum quae regis Antium
:praesens vel imo tollere de gradu
:mortale corpus vel superbos
:vertere funeribus triomphos
::Ovid Book I, 35
:O Goddess, Fortuna, mighty to raise
:The lowly aloft, or the high to abase
:Mighty the pomp or Triumph to turn
:To the darkness or the funeral urn;
::trans. Patrick Bramwell Bronte
:O Diva Fortuna: be propitious to me!
