Quotations

By purple death I'm seized and fate supreme.

Lines from Homer's Iliad|Iliad which, as recorded by Ammianus Marcellinus|Ammianus Marcellinus in book XV of his history, Julian recited upon his elevation to Caesar by Constantius II|Constantius II. Such elevations had often proven fatal to others.

Can anyone be proved innocent, if it be enough to have accused him?

Julian, at the trial of Numerius, governor of Gallia Narbonensis|Gallia Narbonensis, who was accused of embezzlement. Numerius had successfully defended himself against the prosecutor Delphidius, who in his exasperation, declared whether anyone could be found guilty if they only denied the charges, which provoked Julian's response. As quoted in Book XVIII of Ammianus's History.

Indeed I have observed that even the Barbarians across the Rhine sing savage songs composed in language not unlike the croaking of harsh-voiced birds, and that they delight in such songs. For I think it is always the case that inferior musicians, though they annoy their audiences, give very great pleasure to themselves

Julian, on the songs of the early Germans. As quoted in his Mispogon.

The end and aim of the Cynic|Cynic philosophy, as indeed of every philosophy, is happiness, but happiness that consists in living according to nature, and not according to the opinions of the multitude.

As quoted in The Works of the Emperor Julian (1923) by Wilmer Cave France Wright, p. 39; also in The Missing Jesus: Rabbinic Judaism and the New Testament (2003) by Craig Alan Evans, Carl A. Elliott, Bruce Chilton, Jacob Neusner

Is it not absurd when a human being tries to find happiness somewhere outside himself, and thinks that wealth and birth and the influence of friends… is of the utmost importance?

As quoted in The Works of the Emperor Julian (1923) by Wilmer Cave France Wright, p. 41
