    Few roman quotes.

    By Publilius Syrus
    - The cruelty of war makes for peace.
    - Pardon one offence and you encourage the commission of many.
    - We should provide in peace what we need in war.
    - Necessity knows no law except to conquer.
    - It is a bad plan that cannot be altered.
    - He is best secure from dangers who is on his guard even when he seems safe.

    By Seneca the Younger
    - If a man does not know to what port he is sailing, no wind is favourable.
    - The fortunes of war are always doubtful.
    - Constant exposure to dangers will breed contempt for them.

    By Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
    - Few men are born brave; many become so through training and force of discipline.
    - A general is not easily overcome who can form a true judgement of his own and the enemy's forces.
    - What can a warrior do who charges when out of breath?
    - Valour is superior to numbers.
    - Qui desiderat pacem praeparet bellum (Let him who desires peace prepare for war).
    - An ambush, if discovered and promptly surrounded, will repay the intended mischief with interest.
    - An adversary is more hurt by desertion than by slaughter.
    - We die today not only for our friends and family but for our gods and for our forefathers and men before them so pray to them to make us victorious

Nevertheless the Romans where heavily defeated by us (Persians) on several occasions, which where very impressive to say the least.

    I have to note that later Persia revived under the leadership of Shah Abbas the great and the Safavids, it where the intellectual and cultural contributions of Iranians that made Islam "great". However Iran/Persia never reached the greatness of the Achaemenian, Parthian and Sassanian empires! That's because all our achievements where now done under the "Islamic" banner. But damn... Iranian history is fucking impressive througout!
    Persians were the only one to beat Romans, not only that they even humiliated them.

    9 thousand Parthian horse archers totally destructed the Roman legions. Horse archery was a battle tactics employed by Turkic and Mongol people from Iranics.

    By Julius Caesar
    - War gives the right of the conquerors to impose any conditions they please upon the vanquished.
    - Veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered).
    - In war important events result from trivial causes.
    - Alea iacta est (The die has been cast).

    By Cicero
    - The sinews of war are infinite money.
    - Armed forces abroad are of little value unless there is prudent counsel at home.
    - Silent enim leges inter arma (Laws are silent in times of war).
    - Danger gleams like sunshine to a brave man's eyes.
    - The god of war hates those who hesitate.

    By Tacitus
    - Even the bravest are frightened by sudden terrors.
    - The proper arts of a general are judgment and prudence.
    - A bad peace is even worse than war.
    - The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.
    - Valour is the contempt of death and pain.
    - Great empires are not maintained by timidity.
    - They make a solitude and call it peace. [A famous line from Tacitus' De vita et moribus Iulii Agricolae (The Life and Morals of Julius Agricola) (98 CE), Chapter 30. It is part of a speech attributed to the British chieftain Calgacus to his followers before the Battle of Mount Graupius: "To theft, slaughter, and rapine they deceitfully name Empire; and even where they make a desert, they call it peace".

    What are you talking about? A lot of different peoples beat and "humiliated" Romans.

    the roman empire, at least the perception of your posted gif, means 2000 years of history.
    stuff like byzantinology are complete sciences by themselves....

    the thread topic is too vague.

    The Roman Empire can be categorized in several historical areas that spans over 2,000 years.

    Roman Kingdom.
    Roman Republic.
    United Roman Empire I (i.e. Augustus).
    Divided Roman Empire (West and East).
    United Roman Empire II (i.e. Diocletian and Constantine to Theodosius).
    Roman successor states: Kingdoms in the West and Byzantine Empire in the East.

    Trying to write about it all (like Gibbon did) would fill volumes. Arguably the Roman Empire is the most influential civilization in western history since it encompassed so much, i.e. all of the previous cultures and the genesis of the new ones, the birth of Christianity, and so on.
    In Hell there is Democracy, in Heaven there is a Kingdom
    Saint John of Kronstadt
