By Kirk S. Ingraham on August 8, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Publius Syrus was a former Roman slave who became a famous theatre actor and author who was famous for his pithy sayimgs (maxims) in the century before Jesus Christs was born. His sayings were profound and were a part of all western education for 2,000 years. This book encompases most of Publius Syrus' profound sayings. This is an excellent book!

An excellent compilation of witty quotes from Publius Syrus. I would put his writing on a par with that of La Rochefoucauld for its insight into human nature and economy with words. I believe this translation does justice to the original author.
