Philip's resources include mercenary
soldiers, and also, observe! certain mercenary orators here among us, men who
are not ashamed to devote their lives to his service, thinking that they are
carrying home his bribes, but blind to the fact that they are bartering all the
interests of the State, and their own as well, for a paltry profit. We, on the
other hand, make no attempt to foment a revolution in his kingdom, we decline to
hire mercenaries, we shrink from taking the field.
