"What cities, as great as this, have... promised themselves immortality! Posterity can hardly trace the situation of some. The sorrowful traveler wanders over the awful ruins of others... Here stood their citadel, but now grown over with weeds; there their senate-house, but now the haunt of every noxious reptile; temples and theatres stood here, now only an undistinguished heap of ruins."

- Oliver Goldsmith: The Bee, No. iv., 1759. "A City Night Piece".
