Plutarch's, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from Plutarch's, Vol. 3: Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans English by Sir Thomas North, Anno 1579 He was somewhat geven to be redde faced, and had a payer of staring eyes in his heade, as this man telleth us, that for ill will wrote these verses of him after his death: Pluto (the god) which rules the furies infernall, will not receive the damned ghost, of Porcius in his hall: his saucy coppered nose, and fiery staring eyes, his common slaunderous tales, which he did in this world devise, made Pluto stande in dread that he would brawle in hell, although his bones were drie and dead, on earth he was so fell. Furthermore, touchinge the disposition of his body, he was marvelous stronge and lusty, and all bicause he did use to labor and toyle even from his youth, and to live sparingly, as one that was ever brought up in the warres from his youth: so that he was of a very good constitucion, both for strength of body, as for health also. As for utterance, he esteemed it as a seconde body, and most necessarie gift, not onely to make men honest, but also as a thinge very requisite for a man that should beare sway and authoritie in the common wealth. He practised to speake well in litle villages neere home, whether he went many times to plead mennes causes in courtes judiciall, that would retaine him of counsell: so as in shorte time he became a perfect pleader, and had tongue at will, and in processe of time became an excellent orator. After he was thus well knowen, they that were familiar with him, began to perceive a grave manner and behaviour in his life, and a certaine noble minde in him, worthie to be employed in matters of state and great importance, and to be called into the common wealth. For he did not onely refuse to take fees for his pleading, and following the causes he mainteined: but furthermore made no reckening of the estimacion he wanne by that manner and practise, as though that was not the only marke he shot at. But his desire reached further, rather to winne him selfe fame by service in the warres, and by valliant fightinge with his enemie: then with such a quiet and pleasing manner of life.
