Cicero tells how he himself copied the orations of - someone or other; just who it was I do not know, but certainly no Tullius, for there is but one such man, one such voice, one such mind. These are his words: "You say that you have been in the habit of reading the orations of Cassius in your idle moments. "But I," he jestingly adds, with his customary disregard of his adversary's feelings, "have made a practice of copying them, so that I might have no idle moments."
Info for the Press
This page is for the press/media. After they opened Petrarch's tomb I was flooded by requests and I am assuming come his 700th anniversary it will be no different. So this page will hopefully answer all of your questions. If it doesn't, still feel free to contact me with any questions.

Where an author is named other then myself I can not give you permission to copy their work, but there is usually contact information to that author. Where no author is named you may assume I am the author or the text is in the public domain.
