Reading at Random in Classical Literature

Quintilian, Training of the Orator 6.3.29

leave a comment »

oratori minime convenit distortus vultus gestusque, quae in mimis rideri solent.

Not at all suitable for an orator is the distortion of face and of gesture; these things, done by actors of farces, are generally a source of laughter.
