Theophrastus

I ran out of things to read from the library this week and pick up my copy of Norton's Anthology of Classical Literature. What do I find but a piece of work that is still very true today even though its author lived in 370-287 B.C.

The book's title translates to "Characters" by Theophrastus and it is a collection of sketches of different types of people. I think it would be worth reading the entire text and it was quite funny.
