Daily Dose

From Pericles and Aspasia, by Walter Savage Landor


"The graver and uglier philosophers, however they differ on other points, agree in these; that beauty does not reside in the body, but in the mind; that philosophers are the only true heroes; and that heroes alone are entitled to the privilege of being implicitly obeyed by the beautiful."

From LVI. Aspasia to Cleone
