Quotation of the Day

Philo of Alexandria

“Fame and honour are a most precarious possession, tossed about on the reckless tempers and flighty words of careless men: and, when it abides, it cannot of its own nature contain genuine good.  As for wealth and high birth, they attach themselves even to the most worthless of men….” — Philo, Volume VI, edited by Jeffrey Henderson, The Loeb Classical Library (LCL 289), Page 129, year 2002.
