[56] Sometimes, again, we may speak in mockery when we say the opposite of what we desire to be understood, as in Cicero's denunciation of Clodius1: “Believe me, your well known integrity has cleared you of all blame, your modesty has saved you, your past life has been your salvation.”

1 From the lost speech in Clodium et Curionem.
