The Quotation

“Et qui fecere et qui aliorum facta scripsere laundantur.”  “Both those who have achieved, and those who have put in writing the achievements of others, are praised.” 

The above quotation is from the Roman historian Gaius Sallustius Crispus.  Sallust was noted for his concentrated and gnomic style, and this quotation is a perfect example of it.  The Latin of it cannot be improved.
