WISDOM from Cicero (106 B.C. - 49 B.C.)


A mind without instruction can no more bear fruit than can a field, however fertile, without cultivation.

If you aspire to the highest place, it is no disgrace to stop at the second, or even the third, place.

Not to know what happened before you were born is to be a child forever

In anger nothing right nor judicious can be done

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.


There is nothing so ridiculous that some philosopher has not said it.

History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity.

Though silence is not necessarily an admission, it is not a denial either.
