Excerpt
Excerpts: And he did this earnestly, with an outlay of all his science of mind, and that eloquence of which he was known to be a master. For Stoicism was no longer a rude and unkempt thing. Received at court, it had largely decorated itself: it had become persuasive and insinuating, and sought not only to convince men?s intelligences but to allure their souls. Associated with that fair old age of the great rhetorician and his winning voice, it was almost Epicurean. And the old man was at his best on the occasion; the last on which he ever appeared in this way.
