James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Thucydides
 
  [Greek]—All are wont to praise him who is no more.  1
  Ignorance is bold, and knowledge reserved.  2
  Of illustrious men all the earth is the sepulchre, and it is not the inscribed column in their own land which is the record of their virtues, but the unwritten memory of them in the hearts and minds of all mankind.  3
