• Wisdom is the only thing which can relieve us from the sway of the passions and the fear of danger, and which can teach us to bear the injuries of fortune itself with moderation, and which shows us all the ways which lead to tranquility and peace.

    Marcus Tullius Cicero (1853). “The Academic Questions, Treatise de Finibus, and Tusculan Disputations, of Marcus Tullius Cicero: With a Sketch of the Greek Philosophers Mentioned by Cicero”, p.114
