Cicero was a very wise man….




“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear.”

~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

    Hmmm, reminds me of Shakespeare. What is the background of this man? Was he a philosopher?

    As they send all of their political brochures to us, people should be sending a copy of this to everyone they vote for…, this year and every year, Keli. This is a powerful message and those cowardly politicians out there just might understand it if enough of us would send it. Great post ! How ya doin’? 🙂
