Tetchikhan: First Consul Marius
Ah to be young and possess an old man's wisdom.
One cringes from reflection and deep retrospection.
Oh, the foolishness! It is best not to dwell on the past,
Of thoughtless transgressions and mindless matters,
That consumes the passions of the inexperienced.
Vanity crushes the vane and swallows circumspection.
Regret is a woeful tick that embeds itself under your skin.
Many mistakes Marius the younger did make
In the throes of youth and early manhood.
He was obsessed with pleasures of the flesh
