Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC – 7 December 43 BC) was a ancient Roman statesman, orator, lawyer and philosopher, who served as Roman consul in the year 63 BC. He came from a wealthy municipal family of the Roman equestrian order, and is considered one of Rome's greatest orators and prose stylists.[1][2]

Cicero's thoughts on society and family are still relevant today.

"What society does to its children, so will its children do to society."[3]
