No lyric poems live long or please many people which are written by drinkers of water.–Horace, 20 B.C.

Quintus Horatius Flaccus (8 December 65 BCE – 27 November 8 BCE), known in the English-speaking world as Horace, was the leading Roman lyric poet during the time of Augustus. Horace is generally considered to stand alongside Virgil and Ovid as one of the greatest poets of the Augustan Age.
