Topic: Sheldon does Kopi OT (5 msgs / 143 lines)
1) From: Robert Yoder
Greetings, Archeobob,
Thanks for the Sheldon link!
Your quote struck me (it is compelling, I agree), and I did a little 'digging' (research). 
Here's another quote (from a thread on Snopes.com):
In a letter to The Chicago Tribune (20 April 1971), John H. Collins, Professor of History at Northern Illinois University, reported that the following attribution to Cicero,
Quote:
The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. The mobs should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence. 
actually originated in A Pillar of Iron (1965), Taylor Caldwell's fictionalized account of the life of the senator. (In fact, Collins noted that it was on page 483 of the edition he had in hand.)
Collins held that the alleged quotation "is totally without documentation," and that "the great bulk of [Caldwell's] quotations are false." He further observed that "[a] historical novelist has a perfect right to put invented conversations and anecdotes into a novel, but should not represent these inventions as authentic history."
Ah well, the internet giveth; the internet taketh away.
Happy Roasting,

That does not render the concepts expressed in the ersatz Cicero 
quotation invalid however.

As long as we're discussing quotations,  one of my favorites of all time:
"I'm sitting in the smallest room of my house. I have your letter before me.
Soon it will be behind me." -- German composer Max Reeger to a music critic
who wrote a review of Reeger's work.
Followed closely by:
"Bulshytt: Speech (typically but not necessarily commercial or political)
that employs euphemism, convenient vagueness, numbing repetition, and other
such rhetorical subterfuges to create the impression that something has been
said."  -- Neal Stephenson, writing a dictionary definition in his novel
"Anathem."

... And I'm 3/4 through Anathem ~ gawd what a brick! But a 
fascinating read - no coffee yet.
