Quote of the day, Dec. 10

Pliny the Younger, on speeches (from The Letters of the Younger Pliny)

“So we must work at our profession and not make anybody else’s idleness an excuse for our own. There is no lack of readers and listeners; it is for us to produce something worth being written and heard.”
