Ben Duckworth's Party Lines Cicero quotation is a fake. It has been all over the net recently.

Have been diligently searching the whole of Cicero on the Perseus web site in English and Latin, and can find no trace of anything like it.

Cicero is the most impersonated of all classical authors. One should never believe an attribution to him without an exact reference, and even then look it up.
