Excerpt from A Sketch of the Life and Character of Marcus Tullius Cicero
His father Marcus, from whom, being the eldest born, he took that name, was a man of wisdom and learning, but seems to have been infirm of health, and to have therefore, though not without deep reluctance, foregone all attempts to rise in the State; passing the greater part Of his life, at his seat, in the enjoyment, as far as might be, of leisure and elegant literature.
