Notable Quote – Cicero

by Skip

“It is human nature that what starts as gratitude, becomes dependency and ends as entitlement.”

-Cicero

Hey, instead of overdosing on “self-esteem”, can we get schools to push gratitude instead of cutting out the middlemen and gong right to entitlement?

  • This quote seems to exist only on other conservative blogs. None of them say which one of Cicero’s many works this quote came from.

    Of course, Cicero was from ancient Rome, and lived from 103 BCE to 43 BCE, and hence this would have to be a translation from Latin anyway. Strictly speaking he couldn’t have literally said these exact words.

      Did Alinsky dedicate his book to Satan?

      So what? Relevance?
