A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

rather than proved capable of,acquiring it'; Alexander, 'who won a kingdom but never was its king'.
THIS which was hidden from all previous empires has been reserved for you to discover and perfect. Nor is it surprising. As in other things arts arise to correspond with each province of life, so when a vast empire of surpassing power has come into being, an art of government is created and accompanies it, and each strengthens the other. For the greatness of an empire inevitably creates great stores of experience, and at the same time an empire rightly and naturally grows by knowledge of the art of ruling. We cannot enough contemplate and admire the unique grandeur of your statesmen's conception. They have divided into two classes all the members of your empire, and your empire is the world ; the more accomplished, noble, and capable you have everywhere and without exceptions made fellow citizens, or rather fellow countrymen ; the rest you have made obedient subjects. Neither sea, nor broad intervening lands, are bars to citizenship. Asia and Europe are not divided here. Everything,is open and common to all. No one deserving power or trust is a foreigner for you. A democracy of the whole earth has been established under a single and admirable ruler, and all your subjects meet in one centre, each to receive his deserts. What a city is to its frontiers and its territories, Rome is to the inhabited world-the world's city to which all belong. A great people, you mapped your city on great lines. You might have been arrogant and made her admired by refusing to share her privileges with others. Instead you sought a worthy complement for her, and made 'Roman' the name, not of a city, but of a common race.
No envy sets foot in the empire ; for you were the first to disown it, by making common property of all you have, and giving those who were fit the chance of ruling as well as of being ruled. Thus no feelings of hatred arise from people being ignored. There is common citizenship-citizenship as it were
