[45] Thus Sallust makes Catiline1 speak as one who is driven to crime not by wickedness but by indignation, and Varius makes Atreus say:
My wrongs are past all speech,
And such shall be the deeds they force me to.
How much more has this pretence of honour to be kept up by those who have a real regard for their own good name!

1 Cat. xx.
