Xenophon, aka Xenophon of Athens NULL

Greek Historian, Soldier, Mercenary and Student of Socrates

"You should take [dogs] to hunt on different grounds at different times, in order that you may experience varieties in the chase, and that you yourself may become acquainted with the country."

"Your leader is only one man, I heard my voice say. His strength is no more supernatural than your own, nor is his virtue, and by himself he could never preserve the good things that belong by right to everyone. To govern well, he must have your help?the help of his true, trustworthy friends. You must forever be worthy of his trust, and you must raise up true friends of your own, to help you carry your own burdens. And it is love that must bind all of us together."
