There is a rock formation in the Cederberg, in the Western Cape which is named the Stadsaal (city hall), as it has a big central space with the illusion of columns holding up a roof.  There is a piece of graffiti on one wall reading: “Dr D.F. Malan. M.A. Ph.D. L.V. 5 Oct 1915.”

There is an apocryphal story about Julius Caesar, that during his triumphs through Rome, he would have a slave whisper into his ear, “The glories of the world are fleeting.”
