she inspires me with fair hopes that future time will permit my history to survive and never dim its lustre

Roman history is one of my favorite things. This quote from Cassius Dio is eerily prophetic, from his history of Commodus, he mentions he feels compelled to write down history because he KNOWS future time needs him.

I think it’s amazing how a text written in 200 AD can reach from the past right into my head. I feel like this sometimes, I just don’t know what I am supposed to do yet.
