(Here I go, disagreeing with Cicero!  Well, partially, at least.  I’ll buy more dangerous . . . to an extent.  But, numerous?  We have so many physical maladies.  Maybe in Roman times they lumped a lot of what we know as diseases today into a single category?  There can’t be that many soul maladies.  Can there?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
