"Oriented to the future"
The West is entering an era of great power competition with China for which it is not prepared. How to secure freedom and prosperity in this more competitive age is the national security organizing question of our time.
"Freedom is like air, you realize how much it's worth when it starts to run out"
"Peace was my goal, but not my 'idol'; and even the word 'ideal' I regret because too far from reality. My life was back in order, not the empire. The world I had inherited he resembled a man in his prime, still robust, in whom, however, the doctor's eye sees imperceptible signs of wear and tear, like someone who has just recovered from the spasms of a serious illness. Rome is no longer Rome: it will have to recognize itself in half the world or perish?"
"Trahit sua quemque voluptas": each of his bends; each his own purpose, his ambition if you like, the most secret taste, the most open ideal".
For the emperor Hadrian it was "the beautiful": he felt responsible for the beauty of the world.
Humanitas, Felicitas, Libertas... are the words engraved on Roman coins: it is the human aspiration to happiness and the task of those who govern called to fulfill for the people.
"I governed the empire in Latin; in Latin my epitaph will be engraved, on the walls of the mausoleum on the banks of the Tiber; but in Greek I thought, in Greek I lived".
Natura deficit, fortuna mutatur, deus omnia cernit (nature betrays us, fortune changes, a god from above watches everything).
