In those arts, in which it is not indispensable usefulness that is sought, but liberal amusement for the mind, how nicely, how almost fastidiously, do we judge! But now, Crassus, I ask you also on my own account, that since we have so much more leisure than has been allowed us for long time, you would not think it troublesome to complete the edifice which you have commenced; for I see a finer and better plan of the whole work than I could have imagined, and one of which I strongly approve. .

[163] "I rather ask you, Scaevola," says Cotta, "to do that for me; (for modesty forbids Sulpicius and myself to ask of one of the most eminent of mankind, who has ever held in contempt this kind of disputation, such things as he perhaps regards only as rudiments for children;) but do you oblige us in this, Scaevola, and prevail on Crassus to unfold and enlarge upon those matters which he has crowded together, and crammed into so small a space in his speech." For I knew that all this science, this abundance of knowledge, was within the compass of your understanding, but had never seen such rich furniture in the outfit of an orator.". I have been speaking for some time the more timidly on this point, because there is with us a man ** eminent in speaking, whom I admire as an orator beyond all others; but who has ever held the civil law in contempt. by Cicero. "Yet," replied Crassus, "those advocates neither wanted eloquence, nor method, nor abundance of words, but a knowledge of the civil law: for in this case one, in bringing his suit, sought to recover more damages than the law of the Twelve Tables allowed, and, if he had gained those damages, would have lost his case: the other thought it unjust that he himself should be proceeded against for more than was allowed in that sort of action, and did not understand that his adversary, if he proceeded in that manner, would lose his suit. iii.

[112] Indeed, when I was a candidate for office, I used, at the time of canvassing, to send away Scaevola from me, telling him I wanted to be foolish, that is, to solicit with flattery, a thing that cannot be done to any purpose unless it be done foolishly; and that he was the only man in the world in whose presence I should least like to play the fool; and yet fortune has appointed him to be a witness and spectator of my folly.

[166] L   "Can you then," says Crassus, "(to omit other things innumerable and without limit, and come to your study, the civil law,) can you account them orators, for whom Scaevola, ** though in haste to go to the Campus Martius, waited several hours, sometimes laughing and sometimes angry, while Hypsaeus, in the loudest voice, and with a multitude of words, was trying to obtain of Marcus Crassus, the praetor, that the party whom he defended might be allowed to lose his suit; and Gnaeus Octavius, a man of consular dignity, in a speech of equal length, refused to consent that his adversary should lose his case, and that the party for whom he was speaking should be released from the ignominious charge of having been unfaithful in his guardianship, and from all trouble, through the folly of his antagonist?"

What case, for instance, could be of more consequence than that of the soldier, of whose death a false report was brought home from the army, and his father, through giving credit to that report, altered his will, and appointed another person, whom he thought proper, to be his heir; and after the father himself died, the affair, when the soldier returned home and instituted a suit for his paternal inheritance, came on to be heard before the centumviri?

[175] L   "But what if the cases are not trivial, but often of the utmost importance, in which disputes arise concerning points of civil law ? For who does not perceive that to C. Caelius, my contemporary, a new man, the mere mediocrity in speaking, which he was enabled to attain, was a great honour ? It is required by city services that neighbours should bear the burdens of neighbours; and, by such services, one neighbour may be permitted to place a beam upon the wall of another; may be compelled to receive the droppings and currents from the gutter-pipes of another man's house upon his own house, area, or sewer; or may be exempted from receiving them; or may be restrained from raising his house in height, lest he should darken the habitation of his neighbour.

In the first place, I will not deny that, as becomes a man well born and liberally educated, I learned those trite and common precepts of teachers in general; [138] first, that it is the business of an orator to speak in a manner adapted to persuade; next, that every speech is either upon a question concerning a matter in general, without specification of persons or times, or concerning a matter referring to certain persons and times.

See Cic. Proust. Background I: The quarrel between rhetoricians and philosophers, and Cicero's position in it 6.1. [170] I consider my relation, Publius Crassus, who from his wealth had the surname of Dives, ** to have been, in many other respects, a man of taste and elegance, but especially worthy of praise and commendation on this account, that (as he was the brother of Publius Scaevola) ** he was accustomed to observe to him, that neither could he ** have satisfied the claims of the civil law if he had not added the power of speaking (which his son here, who was my colleague in the consulate, has fully attained); nor had he himself ** begun to practise, and plead the cases of his friends, before he had gained a knowledge of the civil law.

[168] L   "Within these few days, ** while we were sitting at the tribunal of our friend Quintus Pompeius, the city praetor, did not a man who is ranked among the eloquent pray that the benefit of the ancient and usual exception, of which sum there is time for payment, might be allowed to a party from whom a sum of money was demanded; an exception which he did not understand to be made for the benefit of the creditor; so that if the defendant ** had proved to the judge that the action was brought for the money before it became due, the plaintiff, ** on bringing a fresh action, would be precluded by the exception, that the matter had before come into judgment. "If you think it scarcely worthy of my age to listen to those ordinary precepts, commonly known everywhere, can we possibly neglect those other matters which you said must be known by the orator, respecting the dispositions and manners of mankind, the means by which the minds of men are excited or calmed, history, antiquity, the administration of the republic, and finally of our own civil law itself?
