Seneca on Cato

Quote

“I do not know I say, what nobler sight the Lord of Heaven could find on earth, should he wish to turn his attention there, than the spectacle of Cato, after his cause had already been shattered more than once, nevertheless standing erect amid the ruins of the commonwealth.”  –  From the latin inscription of Seneca provided on the title page of Addision’s Cato: A Tragedy
