or to put it mildly she attributes present day thinking to these ancient Greeks which of course all of us naturally tend to do She also uses the trick of having her characters prophesy about the future Our politicians will be forgotten but our sculptors will be famous long after we are all dead That sort of thing Rome will become famous and powerfulEnvy is said by the author to be stronger in Greece than anywhere else The author and Pericles spend a lot of words speculating on the envy and greed of humans and how that comes about It's all interesting to ponder The freuency of assassinations in Athens if we are to believe this book is astounding Friends are jealous of one of them gaining power and then start working against him even fabricating charges It goes on and onNaturally Pericles is a near perfect human being and Aspasia an absolutely perfect one And many others are unrelievedly evil doers Unrealistic but comforting to read and believe Yes Caldwell's writing is exceedingly flowery; she never uses a simple word when an arcane word can be found even if the meaning is a bit off I try to imagine how a copy editor might attack this text the floweriness is part of her style but surely dialing it back just a little would make it easier on the reader And there is needless repetition in the bookBut overall what fun to read and imagine these people in Ancient AthensUOTES494 Now Pericles was truly afraid not for Pheidias but for his city for if such things poisoned could happen to a man like the sculptor then no man was safe and there was no real justice521 Mankind cannot endure justice and honor and integrity522 Aspasia 'I have heard from eastern philosophers that when the Unknown God is born to us His most terrible enemies will be of His own house'Helena 'Who else can be so malign as a brother or a child or even a parent if a man attains eminence Who is he they will say who dares to be above us our kinsman Is he not of my blood Therefore he cannot be superior to me'539 Pericles speaking to the jury Men of Athens Sons of the laws of Solon We Greeks for the first time in known history have brought a dream to mankind the dream of liberty of law which all men rulers and ruled must obey of just rewards for just service of freedom of speech and freedom to write of judges and juries of punishments to fit the crime of order not imposed but self imposed of the power to vote and the power to seek redress459 A Roman delegation comes to learn Aspasia Why disillusion these honest men with the truth Let them establish their republic and perhaps they will realize the dream which Athens never attained a dream which other nations may make into a glorious reality author thinking of Europe and USPericles But these barbarian Romans are also men and inevitably they will become corrupt and establish a democracy and hence a despotism345 Aspasia Republics suppress aristocracy democracies suppress freedom What then is the best government I have heard it said that a benign despotism is the best but as there are few benign men and despotism is abhorred by such my friend was wrong An aristocratic Republic is the best though that may seem a contradiction in terms Democracies are the worst; they become tyrannies for the reason that when every man speaks whether he is a fool or a wise man chaos and shouting take over government and inevitably a strong if dangerous man assumes power326 It is not the attributes of the dead which we remember thought Pericles but their easy smiles their words of love however false their amiability The noblest man is not recalled with affection and reverence if he had a shrewd cynicism about his fellow man or had a brusue manner and an undeviating honesty A man who spoke the truth was hated in his lifetime and forgotten after his death We prefer affable liars even if they wounded us and deceived usMalice was the one dread and terrible trait which all human beings possessed It was inspired by envy private cruel ridicule of the victim greed or some petty imagined offense the victim had inflicted on his destroyer Often it was only the result of the heroic character of the victim; men can endure anything but profound virtue in another Virtue inflamed hate among mankind just as vice receives secret admiration

Is a glory cloud biblical The term glory cloud is not found anywhere in Scripture and many rightly wonder whether such a thing is biblical It is significant that the “proof texts” for a glory cloud come entirely from the Old Testament The New Testament contains no examples of God manifesting Himself in such a cloud Since the church lives under the New Testament covenant we have no basis for believing such. A pretty good book with a story about Greece during the rule of Pericles The author writes a lot about the difficulties of governing with reference to democracy and republic types of government
