Description: Gives some of the most well known and memorable quotes of Cicero.

We are lucky to still have remanants of Cicero’s writings. These writings have left us with a wealth of wise and thoughtful quotes. This  quote is a good example of Cicero’s poetic elegance even in the midst of a debate: “O tempora, o mores ” (1)

His observations are as sharp as ever: “Nihil est incertius vulgo, nihil obscurius voluntate hominum, nihil fallacius ratione tota comitiorum .” (3)

If he lived in modern times, he would’ve been an excellent political advisor: “Primum minima de malis ” (4)

He was a proponent of truth and was not afraid to offend members of his society. It’s no wonder his writings are still respected today: “Sed nescio quo modo nihil tam absurde dici potest quod non dicatur ab aliquo philosophorum ” (7)

(3)  “Nothing is more unpredictable than the mob, nothing more obscure than public opinion, nothing more deceptive than the whole political system” Pro Murena (In Defense of Murena 36)

(5)  “The beginnings of all things are small” De finibus bonorum et malorum (On the Ends of Good and Evil V, 58)

(7) “Nothing so absurd can be said that some philosopher had not said it” De Divinatione (Concerning   Divination II, 119)
