Heroes have the whole earth for their tomb

There is borne an empty hearse
covered over for such as appear not.
Heroes have the whole earth for their tomb.

Pericles

Our love of what is beautiful does not lead to extravagance;
our love of the things of the mind does not make us soft.
— Pericles, as recorded by Thucydides, in the History of the Peloponnesian War
