Strana 90 - There while they acted and overacted, among other young scholars, I was a spectator; they thought themselves gallant men, and I thought them fools ; they made sport, and T laughed ; they mispronounced, and I misliked ; and to make up the atticism, they were out, and I hissed.
Strana 88 - Bad I have scaped, and better I have found ; " priding yourself that no one ever howled so lustily — and I believe him ! for don't suppose that he who speaks so loud is not a splendid howler !

Strana 105 - So I ask you to compare me with the orators of the day, with yourself, with any one you like : I yield to none. When the commonwealth was at liberty to choose for her advantage, and patriotism was a matter of emulation, I showed myself a better counselor than any, and every act of state was pursuant to my decrees and laws and negotiations : none of your party was to be seen, unless you had to do the Athenians a mischief.
Strana 90 - You taught reading, I went to school : you performed initiations, I received them : you danced in the chorus, I furnished it : you were assembly clerk, I was a speaker : you acted third parts, I heard you : you broke down, and I hissed : you have worked as a statesman for the enemy, I for my country.

Strana 3 - ... most of them calumniating me, I deem it both necessary and just, men of Athens, to begin by shortly adverting to these points, that none of you may be induced by extraneous arguments to shut your ears against my defence to the indictment.
Strana 102 - O earth and heaven ! — we should have been the greatest of people incontestably, and deserved to be so : even under their failure the result is glory, and no one blames Athens or her policy : all condemn fortune that so ordered things) : but never will he desert the interests of the commonwealth, nor hire himself to her adversaries, and study the enemy's advantage instead of his country's ; nor on a man who has courage to advise and propose measures worthy of the state, and resolution to persevere...
Strana 23 - ... fractured, his hand and leg mutilated, and was ready and willing to sacrifice any part of his body that fortune chose to take, provided he could live with the remainder in honor and glory?
Strana 42 - ... their own expense arm the young men with eight hundred shields: It hath been resolved by the council and people to crown Charidemus and Diotimus with a golden crown, and to proclaim it at the great Panathenaic festival, during the gymnastic contest, and at the Dionysian festival, at the exhibition of the new tragedies: the proclamation to be given in charge to the judges, the presidents, and the prize-masters.
Strana 54 - I said — those who were in such alarm under the idea that Philip had got the Thebans with him did not, in my opinion, understand the position of affairs ; for I was sure had that really been so, we should have heard not of his being at Elatea, but upon our frontiers : he was come, however, I knew for certain, to make all right for himself in Thebes. 'Let me inform you,' said I, 'how the matter stands.
