Learning from the Romans..

My learning for the day is about appearances. The Romans, who influenced modern civilization like no other civilization did, were fanatical about appearances. Every person dressed as per his/her social status to the point that members of the senate always had a violet line on all their clothes to indicate their social standing. As someone much wiser said, when you dress, don’t dress as who you are – rather dress as who you would like to be.

Quote – ‘ As a person moves up in life, he dresses more like the President!’

Well, this calls for more thought to my selection of clothes! 🙂
