"When I was a boy, wealth was regarded as a thing so secure as well as admirable that almost everyone affected to own more property than he actually possessed...Now a man has to be ready to defend himself against being rich as if it were the worst of crimes."
----Thucydides (History of the Peloponnesian War, VIII, bk 24,1.18)
"Omnia fert aetas, animum quoque. (Time bears away all things, even the memory.)"
----Virgil (Ibid., bk IX, 1.5)
"A law which is not just does not seem to be a law."
----Augustine of Hippo [St. Augustine] (The problem of Free Choice)
