John of Salisbury
Et pro virtutum habitu quilibet et liber est, et, quatenus est liber, eatenus virtutibus pollet.
John of Salisbury quotes
Exquisita lectio singulorum, doctissimum; cauta electio meliorum, optimum facit.
John of Salisbury
He learnt to write what is regarded by competent critics as the purest Latin of the middle ages…The breadth of his reading in the Latin classics is astonishing.




John of Salisbury quotes
He would be a scholar in any age, and was head and shoulders above his own.
