Quote of the Day

“It was during the first period of this constitution that the Athenians appear to have enjoyed the best government that they ever did, at least in my time. For the fusion of the high and low was effected with judgment, and this was what first enabled the state to raise up her head after her manifold disasters.”

-Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War (hat tip: Steve Schwartz)
