Walter Savage Landor, "Asinius Pollio and Licinius Calvus: Second Conversation," Imaginary Conversations
, Vol. II (London: J.M. Dent & Co., 1901), pp. 114-127 (at 116):
Pollio. In my opinion, that religion is the best in which there
is the least of fraud and violence, the most of forbearance and
Calvus. Wise and good-natured gods will never quarrel about
the names they are called by. Do parents whip their children
for imperfect pronunciation?
Pollio. I would not be surety for morose and ferocious men,
intoxicated by the wine-cup of their priests, keeping the peace
toward you, if you declined their mysteries and orgies. They call
you blind, and knock out your eyes for being so.
