"Nothing is so unbelievable that oratory cannot make it acceptable."—Cicero
"Nowadays, flattery wins friends, truth hatred."—Terence
Memorable quotes from Socrates, Euripides, Plutarch, Sophocles, Marcus Aurelius, and other ancient poets, playwrights, statesmen, and philosophers fill the pages of this handy collection of wit and wisdom. Their subjects touch all aspects of human life: adversity, contentment, courage, death, generosity, greed, love, procrastination, self-discipline, war, and peace. An appendix provides brief biographies of the contributors and a pronunciation guide to the Greek and Roman names.
A handy aid for speech writers and public speakers, these thoughtful, sagacious words of advice from the best minds of bygone civilizations still ring true in the twenty-first century.
