“Ρώμη μετά φρονήσεως” (Vigor combined with prudence)

Vigor combined with prudence is indeed an advantage; yet, without prudence vigor harms its possessors more than it helps them – and,  while it embellishes the bodies of those who exercise them,  yet it obscures the cultivation of the soul.
(Isocrates, Orations to Demonicus, 3-7)
(Loeb, by G. Norlin)

Isocrates (436-338 BC) states the aforementioned while giving advice to Demonicus, possibly son of his friend Ipponikos,
tyrant of Kitieis, Rhodes, around 394 BC.


The Hellenic Tactical Air Force (HTAF) is located in Larisa City.
