Quotes about Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus edit

All but one of the dictators of republican Rome were patricians. All but two of them complied with the time limits that were imposed on them. One of them, Cincinnatus, who, after only sixteen days of exercising the supreme office, spontaneously returned to plough the field with oxen, has gone down in history with the colors of legend. (Indro Montanelli)
