The reason why I chose the following quotes is because I find them personally interesting and can relate them to my life and the world today, or because they are academically interesting or controversial.

Creating is better than learning!Creation is the essence of life.
Strangely, Caesar sees "progress" as a concept of the ancient world, but he knows that what drives humanity forward is creation.Caesar is mainly an action man, and it is easy to see people like him think that doing is more important than learning.However, for mortals like me, it is often difficult to "do" before some learning happens ".For me, they are intertwined concepts.

This shows that Caesar really understands the importance of power and legalization.When Caesar thinks he will win, he has no doubts about acting outside the law.He crossed the river Rubicon and took Rome as an example.First he took action and then, after he won, he legalised his action.The winner wrote a history book, which he knew very well.

Words of prophecy--xa0When Caesar was caught by a group of colleagues and stabbed to death at the age of 54, he fulfilled his wish.It's hard to imagine he knew the plot was going on.Times are violent, and perhaps Caesar is expected to die in battle or other sudden causes such as a shipwreck.However, at the time of his murder, it was said that he ignored the warning of a forum abger ("Careful Mariners") and rejected the offer of the bodyguard.If he had listened to the divination, he might have avoided violence and accidental death that day.

This again proves Caesar's profound insight into the human mind.Fear is a small death of stabbing and biting people.I don't know if Caesar is as afraid of things as most people are.Maybe what really sets him apart is his greatest confidence?I will never know, but I know that whether or not he feels that way, he understands how fear works in others.
