Although everywhere from east to west had been domesticated by force of arms and was in obedience to it, and domestically both peace and riches (which mortals think of chief importance) were overflowing, nevertheless there were citizens who with hardened hearts set out to destroy both themselves and the commonwealth.""
60.0% ""For it is certainly displeasing to say how you have been the plaything of the haughty few for the last fifteen years, how foully and how unavenged your defenders have perished, how your spirit has been undone by apathy and lethargy--you who do not rise up even now, when your antagonists are vulnerable, and who still fear those to whom you ought to be a source or terror." Gaius Memmius, tribune of the plebs."
