her, the parts of the body belong to another, possession (property) belongs to another.

This road leads to freedom, this is the only way of escaping from slavery, to be able to say at last with all your soul Lead me, O Zeus, and thou 0 destiny, The way that I am bid by you to go.Epictetus, Encheiridion c. 52. M. Antoninus, Gatak. 2d. ed. 1697, Annot. p. 96. But what do you say, philosopher? The tyrant summons you to say something which does not become you. Do you say it or do you not?

For the sake of this which is called liberty, some hang themselves, others throw themselves down precipices, and sometimes even whole cities have perished: and will you not for the sake of the true and unassailable and secure liberty give back to God w

For as he did not fence his city with walls, but fortified the inhabitants by virtue and preserved the city always free;Schweig. quotes Polybius ix. 10, 1, 'a city is not adorned by external things, but by the virtue of those who dwell in it.' Alcaeus says, 22, Bergk, Poetae Lyrici Graeci, 1843,— ou) li/foi teixe/wn eu)= dedoma/menoi, a)ll' a)/ndres to/lios pu/rgos a)rh/i+oi so do you not cast around (your house) a large court and raise high towers, but strengthen the dwellers by good will and fidelity and friendship, and then nothing harmful will enter it, not even if the whole band of wickedness shall array itself against i
