After being elected as consul for life, Octavian changed his name to Augustus, which means ‘Majestic One.’ Augustus Caesar ruled Rome from 27 B.C. until his death in A.D. 14.
During his reign, Augustus Caesar instituted a number of reforms that strengthened the empire and helped the poor find work and improved their lives overall. He also oversaw a number of important building projects that led him to declare, "I found this city in bricks, and left it in marble."
Old age lives minutes slowly, hours quickly; childhood chews hours and swallows minutes.
