DA TODI JACOPONE (JACOBUS DE BENEDICTUS)
Italian monk and poet
(died c. 1306)

So many great nobles, things, administrations,
  So many high chieftains, so many brave nations,
    So many proud princes, and power so splendid,
      In a moment, a twinkling, all utterly ended.
      - De Contemptu Mundi [Change]

Where's Caesar gone now, in command high and able?
  Or Xerxes the splendid, complete in his table?
    Or Tully, with powers of eloquence ample?
      Or Aristotle, of genius the highest example?
      - De Contemptu Mundi,
        (translation by Abraham Coles) [Fame]
