Roman author and orator
(c. 62 - 113)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2

The highest of characters, in my estimation, is his, who is as ready to pardon the moral errors of mankind, as if he were every day guilty of some himself; and at the same time as cautious of committing a fault as if he never forgave one.
  [Lat., Optimum et emendatissimum existimo, qui ceteris ita ignoscit, tanquam ipse quotidie peccet; ita peccatis abstinet, tanquam nemini ignoscat.]
      - Epistles (VIII, 22) [Character]

Individuals indeed may deceive and be deceived; but no one has ever deceived all men, nor have all men ever deceived any one.
  [Lat., Singuli enim decipere et decipi possunt: nemo omnes, neminem omnes fefellunt.]
      - Panegyr--Traj (62) [Deceit]

The prince is not above the laws, but the laws above the prince.
  [Lat., Non est priceps super leges, sed leges supra principem.]
      - Panegyr--Traj (65) [Law]
