John Adams, Diary December 21 1758:
Yesterday and to day I have read loud, Tullius 4 Orations against Cataline. The Sweetness and Grandeur of his sounds, and the Harmony of his Numbers give Pleasure enough to reward the Reading if one understood none of his meaning. Besides I find it, a noble Exercise. It exercises my Lungs, raises my Spirits, opens my Porr[s], quickens the Circulations, and so contributes much to Health.
One thought on “Maintain Your Health: Read Cicero!”
It is pity, that there is no dialogue De Sanitate, to make a threesome with the Amicitia and Senectute.
