Live Well and Honorably

I come across little things from random sources. I just happened to find an old magazine that was packed away in a box of books and found the following quote by Cicero:

We ought all to be content with the time and portion assigned us. No man expects of any one actor in the theatre that he should perform all the parts of the piece himself: One role only is committed to him, and whatever that be, if he act well, he is applauded. In the same way, it is not the part of a wise man to desire to be busy in these scenes to the last plaudit. A short term may be long enough to live it well and honorably.
