"Furthermore, those who wish to be feared must inevitably be afraid of those whom they intimidate. What, for instance, shall we think of Dionysios [tyrant of Syracuse from 405 to 367]? With what tormenting fears he used to be racked! For through fear of the barber's razor he used to have his hair singed off with a glowing coal." [Marcus Tullius Cicero, -44 (1928), 193]
