Cicero, Letters to Atticus 7.3.2: If I hadn't had that idea about a triumph, which you also approve of, then you wouldn't find me far short of that man who's described in the sixth book. Why should I be silent with you, who gobbled up those books? As it is, I won't have any doubts about abandoning so grand a thing, if it's better to do so; it's impossible for both to proceed together, to campaign for a triumph and to speak freely on public affairs.
You're waiting for the complete foresight of this leader, which derives its name from seeing ahead. [+Nonius 42.3]
Therefore this citizen must so prepare himself as always to be armed against things which disturb the stability of the state. [+Nonius 256.27]
That discord of the citizens is called sedition because people go apart in following different leaders. [+Nonius 25.3]
And in fact in a civil discord, when the respectable citizens are more important than the majority, I believe citizens should be weighed, not counted. [+Nonius 519.17]
The passions exercise powerful control over thoughts; they compel and command innumerable things, and since they can't be fulfilled or satiated in any way, they drive to every sort of crime those whom they have inflamed with their enticements. [+Nonius 424.31]
Who has beaten down its force and unbridled ferocity. [+Nonius 492.1]
Which was all the greater, since, although the two colleagues were in the same position, they were not only not hated equally, but affection for Gracchus dispelled the hatred for Claudius. [+Aulus Gellius, Attic Nights 7.16.11 and Nonius 290.15]
Whoever among the number of the best men and leading citizens has offered <aid to sedition?> abandons the solemn and dignified sound of his voice and respectability. [+Nonius 409.31]
so that, as he writes, a thousand men should go down to the forum daily with cloaks dyed in purple [+Nonius 501.27]
In their case, as you remember, the funeral was suddenly adorned by a crowd of the most insignificant people, collected with cash. [+Nonius 517.35]
Our ancestors wanted marriages to be solidly established. [+Nonius 512.27 and Priscian 3.70.11K]
The speech of Laelius, which we have all read, <shows> how pleasing to the immortal gods are the earthenware vessels of the priests and the sacrificial vessels (as he writes) of Samian pottery.
