“Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts” -Cicero
If you haven’t read any of Cicero’s books then stop what you are doing and pick up one immediately. Cicero is a better word-smith than just about anyone and his moral sense of duty was unquestioned. Professors of Law Schools throughout the world study his work because his arguments are so compelling and sound. I love Cicero and re-read his political speech “In Verrum” every chance I get. Give it a try if you like well constructed thought patterns.
