Text Versions
I was born in England and went to school there. That’s when I discovered my undying passion for history - not just for the Middle Ages, but all periods of history. My favorites are medieval, Elizabethan, and Georgian; however, I’ve written stories set in periods as early as ancient Rome, right up to the Victorian era.  (Ancient Rome Quotes) Going after a part in Hollywood is like being a gladiator in ancient Rome. When it comes down to getting a role, you don’t have any friends, you’re incredibly competitive and any actor who tells you different is lying.  (Ancient Rome Quotes) From food trucks to hot dog stands to county fair favorites, ‘street food’ has enjoyed a rich and storied history in American cuisine. However, street food has been around for thousands of years. In fact, street food is believed to have originated as far back as Ancient Rome.  (Ancient Rome Quotes) And here we encounter the seeds of government disaster and collapse - the kind that wrecked ancient Rome and every other civilization that allowed a sociopolitical monster called the welfare state to exist.  (Ancient Rome Quotes) I read mostly historical fiction - lots of stuff set in ancient Rome and ancient Greece.

Why did France after they got rid of the king and that whole system turn around and give it to Napoleon? It’s the same thing with Germany and Hitler  (Ancient Rome Quotes) Fit men walking around and bathing, it would be just like being in Ancient Rome [on a footballers dressing room  (Ancient Rome Quotes) If you spend any time in Washington you’ll find nerds. What happens is most of them sublimate their fixations with comics, or baseball cards, or 1960s British comedies to policy minutiae and political arcana. But, like Christians in ancient Rome, you can still spot them if you know the signals  (Ancient Rome Quotes) OVATION, n. N ancient Rome, a definite, formal pageant in honor of one who had been disserviceable to the enemies of the nation. A lesser triumph  (Ancient Rome Quotes) My mother’s father taught English literature. When I was about ten or eleven, I could recite Macaulay’s ‘Lays of Ancient Rome.’ While other kids were playing pedestrian war games, I’d be Horatius keeping the bridge  (Ancient Rome Quotes) But, ancient Greece and ancient Rome - people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then, OK? People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source, for distant and unknowable reasons  (Ancient Rome Quotes) If we were living in ancient Rome or Greece, I would be considered sickly and unattractive. The times dictate that thin is better for some strange reason, which I think is foolish  (Ancient Rome Quotes) Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what's going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate?  (Ancient Rome Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
