Alienum aes homini ingenuo acerba est servitus.
Homo sum: nihil humani a me alienum puto. I am a man, I regard nothing that is human alien to me.
Yet, if such a being, who reversed the maxim nihil humani me alienum puto [nothing human is foreign to me], cannot be loved, as little can he be abhorred or despised. He was, in spite of the atrophy or non development of many of the faculties which are found in those in whom the "elements are kindly mixed," as truly a genius as the mere poets, painters, and musicians, with small intellects and hearts and large imaginations, to whom the world is so willing to bend the knee. He is more to be wondered at than blamed.henry cavendish
Homo sum: humani nihil a me alienum puto. Variant:
