„Though you're a whole world, Rome, still, without Love,
The world isn't the world, and Rome can't be Rome.“

—  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, livro Roman Elegies

Elegy 1
Roman Elegies (1789)
Contexto: I'm gazing at church and palace, ruin and column,
Like a serious man making sensible use of a journey,
But soon it will happen, and all will be one vast temple,
Love's temple, receiving its new initiate.
Though you're a whole world, Rome, still, without Love,
The world isn't the world, and Rome can't be Rome.
