“Ημις δε ουδ' αυτοι φαμεν επι το υπο τουτων υβριζεσθαι κατοικισαι,

αλλ' επι το ηγεμονες τε ειναι και τα εικοτα θαυμαζεσθαι. άι γουν
αλλαι αποικιαι τιμωσιν ημας, και μαλιστα υπ’ αποικων στεργομεθα,
και δηλον ότι και τους πλεοσιν αρεσκοντες εσμεν, τοισδ' αν μονοις ουκ
ορθως απαρεσκοιμο.-THUCYDIDES.

Nec me fallit, ut in corporibus hominum, sic in animis multiplici passione affectis,
medicamenta verborum multis inefficacia visum iri. Sed nec illud quoque me præterit,
ut invisibiles animorum morbos, sic invisibilia esse remedia. Falsis opinionibus

cir.
cumventi, veris sententiis liberandi sunt, ut qui audiendo ceciderant audiendo consur.
