A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on adversity, age, certainty, company, embarrassment, home, journeys, joy, life, prosperity, study, and youth

Other relaxations are peculiar to certain times, places and stages of life, but the study of letters is the nourishment of our youth, and the joy of our old age. They throw an additional splendor on prosperity, and are the resource and consolation of adversity; they delight at home, and are no embarrassment abroad; in short, they are company to us at night, our fellow travelers on a journey, and attendants in our rural recesses.
