Cicero, Letters to his Friends 12.2.1

leave a comment »

Cicero writes to Cassius shortly after delivering his First ‘Philippic’ in 44 BC.

vehementer laetor tibi probari sententiam et orationem meam; qua si saepius uti liceret, nihil esset negotii libertatem et rem publicam reciperare.

I am extremely happy that my opinion and my speech meet with your approval; if it were allowed me to make such speeches more often, it would be no trouble to restore freedom and civil affairs.
