Final lines of Cicero’s 2nd oration against Mark Antony

“I defended the republic as a young man; I will not abandon it now that I am old.  I scorned the sword of Catiline; I will not quail before yours.  No; I will rather cheerfully expose my own person, if the liberty of the city can be restored by my death.”
