A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

THE whole world keeps holiday, and laying aside its ancient dress of steel has turned in freedom to adornment and all delights. The cities have abandoned their old quarrels, and are occupied by a single rivalry, each ambitious to be most pleasant and beautiful. Everywhere are playgrounds, fountains, arcades, temples, workshops, schools. To use a metaphor from medicine, the world sick from creation has recovered its health. Gifts never cease flowing from you. One cannot find one place more richly endowed than another, for your beneficence is equally shown to all. Cities are ablaze with brightness and beauty, and all the earth is adorned like a king's garden. The beacon fires of friendship rise on her plains, and those of war are gone as though a wind had blown them beyond land and sea : in their place has come every beautiful spectacle and an endless number of games. Like sacred, ever-burning fires, festivals never cease, but move from people to people and are always being celebrated somewhere. You have best shown the truth of the universal legend that earth is the common mother and fatherland of all. Today Greek or foreigner may travel freely where he will, with full or empty hands, as though he was passing from homeland to homeland. The Cilician gates have no terrors for him, nor the narrow sandy passes through Arabia to Egypt, nor difficult mountains nor inhospitable savage tribes nor rivers broad beyond measuring. To be safe, it is enough to be a Roman, or rather a subject of yours. You have made into a reality the saying of Homer that earth belongs to all, for you have meted out the whole world, bridled rivers with many a bridge, cut mountains into carriage roads, filled the deserts with outposts, and civilized all things with settled discipline and life.
Another passage deals with the imperial regime.
EVERYTHING is carried out at a command, at a sign, quicker than one could sound a string. If anything needs doing, it is enough to resolve it, and it is done. The
