Sculpture bust of Roman teacher and writer Quintilian.


(35 - c. 96)

A rhetoric teacher in Rome and the author of The Institutes of Oratory, Quintilian spent “twenty years…devoted to the training of the young.” On the imperative of universal education he argued, “As birds are born for flying, horses for speed, beasts of prey for ferocity, so are we for mental activity and resourcefulness.”
