The Carmina of Caius Valerius Catullus, by Catullus


Multus homo es Naso, neque tecum multus homost qui

Descendit: Naso, multus es et pathicus.


On Naso.

Great th’art (Naso!) as man, nor like thee many in greatness

Lower themselves (Naso!): great be thou, pathic to boot.

A mighty man thou art, Naso, yet is a man not mighty who doth stoop like thee: Naso thou art mighty — and pathic.
