Love and Blunder recommends their pastor’s new blog, and after viewing it, I can’t disagree. Especially with this one! (Not to mention the quote of Walther, veritas odium parit–which is, by the way, actually a quote of Cicero quoting Terence. This from my learned cousin:
Reviewing Cicero’s dialogue on friendship, De Amicitia, I came upon the rest of that quote that Timothy brought to your attention:
obsequium amicos, veritas odium parit
“Flattery gets friends; the truth, hatred.”
Cicero is not the actual author; he quoted it from a
work by the playwright Terence.).
