Cato the Younger quotes
Fortune, you have accomplished nothing by resisting all my endeavours. I have fought, till now, for my country's freedom, and not for my own, I did not strive so doggedly to be free, but only to live among the free. Now, since the affairs of mankind are beyond hope, let Cato be withdrawn to safety.
According to Seneca's Epistulae morales ad Lucilium, Cato the Younger cried out these words prior to stabbing himself with the sword and eventually taking his own life.
