Wisdom from Cicero

"...For the traitor appears not a traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared."
-Cicero, 42 B.C.

    My Mom had sent this to me a while back. I wanted to publish it before, and I never did. It just sat here as a draft for...months and months. But I kept it, thinking that sometime I would publish it, that it would fit better. Now seems about right. So here it is. Glean the truth while you can. Shalom.
