Xenophon
Quotations

A man's praises have very musical and charming accents in the mouth of another, but sound very flat and untunable in his own.

Policy goes beyond strength, and contrivance before action; hence it is that direction is left to the commander, and execution to the soldier, who is not to ask Why? but to do what he is commanded.
