Cicero Executed

Cicero Executed

Cicero was a patriot, eloquent defender of the Republic and the most esteemed morals tutor of the wealthiest and most powerful Roman families. His name is a byword for self-restraint, good sense, and eloquence. Result? He is executed in political shakeup. His hands and tongue are cut off and nailed to the rostrum in the Senate. The wife of a value-based planning client runs that eloquent tongue through with her hat pin. A Journey from Success to Significance? I suspect he would have invoked Fortune's Wheel as a better image.
