I'm coming home, I'm coming home, Tell the world I'm coming home.

Hello all, sorry for being so inactive lately but I'll be back on shortly once I'm finished with finals. I'll probably be doing Brilliant for like 5 hours a day minimum over summer so I'll be more active then.

I just was curious, does anyone perchance know where/in what text Cicero stated something like "I don't want the money, but to be remembered for what I've done"? I've tried searching the web but I'm still empty handed. Any help is appreciated.

Hey, Trevor, glad to hear you're still alive and kicking. I had to laugh at the juxtaposition of this quote and your hashtag #Easymoney. :) The wording you've provided doesn't sound all that Ciceroesque. It seems to have a similar sentiment to

  • "Virtue is its own reward",

  • "In prosperity let us avoid pride, disdain and arrogance",

  • "If you pursue good with labor, the labor passes away but the good remains", and even

  • "Friendship makes prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it",

but I haven't found anything with the key words "money" and "remembered" in it. Gave it my best shot. :(

P.S.. You'll still be the first to know when I finally post my "special" 1000 follower question. Did I ever mention that I am a consummate procrastinator? :) Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Brian Charlesworth I believe #Easymoney is the tag Trevor uses to mark his posts so he can track them later on . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M Yes, Trevor has mentioned that to me before. I just found it funny to see it's presence under the quote he is inquiring about. :) Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Brian Charlesworth Of course . Btw , I wonder why he's inquiring about that quote . Looks like either an English project has turned up or Trev has struck rich ;) Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 11 months ago
