Books are the food of youth, the delight of old age; the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity; a delight at home, and no hindrance abroad; companions by night, in traveling, in the country.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

Brevity is a great charm of eloquence.
Brevity is the best recommendation of speech, whether in a senator or an orator.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
The causes of events are ever more interesting than the events themselves.
Hatreds not vowed and concealed are to be feared more than those openly declared.
Confidence is that feeling by which the mind embarks in great and honorable courses with a sure hope and trust in itself.
To add a library to a house is to give that house a soul.
