and yet you still raise your
voice, and dare to look your fellow citizens in the face! Do you imagine that
they do not know who you are? that they are sunk in such slumber and oblivion
that they do not remember the harangues you made while the war was still going
on, when you protested with oaths and curses that you had no dealings with
Philip— that I had laid that charge against you out of private malice,
and that it was not true?
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
