"Superare divos" is a literal quotation from the Roman poet Catullus,
Ille mi par esse deo videtur,
ille, si fas est, superare divos,
qui sedens adversus identidem te
spectat et audit
"That man seems to me to be equal to a god; he seems even to surpass the gods, if that is permissible, who sitting opposite looks at you and hears you again and again."
I cannot think of an exact equivalent for “stand upon the heavens”, but the idea is close to that of the saying ascribed to the Greek mathematician Archimedes, in his Doric Greek: δῶς μοι πᾶ στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινάσω, “Give me a place to stand and I shall move the Earth”.
