Suetonius, Tacitus, Livy: Life Lessons

Suetonius

Suetonius

“Nothing is more unpredictable than the mob, nothing more obscure than public opinion, nothing more deceptive than the whole political system.”― Suetonius

tacitus

Tacitus

 

Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth; when perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed; nor has anyone who is apt to be angry when he hears the truth any cause to wonder that he does not hear it. – Tacitus

Livy

Livy

He was always before men’s eyes; a course of action which, by increasing our familiarity with great men, diminishes our respect for them. – Livy
