„The most delightful of all music, that of your own praises.“

—  Xenophon, libro Hiero

Hiero, ch. 3, as translated by Richard Graves in The Whole Works of Xenophon (1832) p. 626).

„It is only for those to employ force who possess strength without judgment; but the well advised will have recourse to other means.“

—  Xenophon

Memorabilia of Socrates Bk. 1, ch. 2, as translated by Sarah Fielding in The Whole Works of Xenophon (1840), p. 523.
Contexto: It is only for those to employ force who possess strength without judgment; but the well advised will have recourse to other means. Besides, he who pretends to carry his point by force hath need of many associates; but the man who can persuade knows that he is himself sufficient for the purpose; neither can such a one be supposed forward to shed blood; for, who is there would choose to destroy a fellow citizen rather than make a friend of him by mildness and persuasion?

„On making prisoners of our generals, they expected that we should perish from want of direction and order.“

—  Xenophon, libro Anabasis

Bk. 3, ch. 2; pp. 88-89.
Anabasis
Contexto: On making prisoners of our generals, they expected that we should perish from want of direction and order. It is incumbent, therefore, on our present commanders to be far more vigilant than our former ones, and on those under command to be far more orderly, and more obedient to their officers, at present than they were before…On the very day that such resolution is passed, they will see before them ten thousand Clearchuses instead of one.

„On the very day that such resolution is passed, they will see before them ten thousand Clearchuses instead of one.“
