A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on arrogance, balance, budgets, control, debt, government, learning, life, people, and work

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if Rome doesn't want to become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
