|Illustration for Petronius Arbiter's Satyricon by Norman Lindsay|
Encolpius speaks to the wilderness around him, his friend Ascyltus lies dead.
"Where is all your joy now, your arrogance?
Now you're at the mercy...of fishes and wild beasts, you who bragged...of your warlike innocence.
Come now, mortals! Fill your hearts with dreams!
O Gods, how far he lies from his destination!"
From the penultimate scene in "Satyricon," by Frederico Fellini.
