Discussing quote:

I add this, that rational ability without education has more often raised man to glory and virtue, than education without natural ability

Given that Marcus T. Cicero was a Roman Orator, this is not a literal quotation. Hence, the statement would have greater impact if rephrased to avoid the use of the term 'oftener' [poor grammar]. Perhaps, "I add this, that rational ability without education has more often raised man to glory and virtue, than education without natural ability".

Thanks for that, it's been changed to something more understandable.
