„All mankind rules its women, and we rule all mankind, but our women rule us.“

—  Cato the Elder
In bitter criticism of the prevalent domination of women (The Classical weekly, Vol. 25–26, 1932, p. 273). Quoted in Plutarch Apophthegmata regum et imperatorum, in Greek.

„When you have decided to purchase a farm, be careful not to buy rashly; do not spare your visits and be not content with a single tour of inspection. The more you go, the more will the place please you, if it be worth your attention. Give heed to the appearance of the neighbourhood, - a flourishing country should show its prosperity. "When you go in, look about, so that, when needs be, you can find your way out."“

—  Cato the Elder
Of buying a farm; Cited in (1825) An Encyclopædia of Agriculture. Part 1. p. 14 Loudon commented: In the time of Cato the Censor, the author of The Husbandry of the Ancients observed, though the operations of agriculture were generally performed by servants, yet the great men among the Roman continued to give particular attention to it, studied its improvement, and were very careful and exact in the management of nil their country affairs. This appears from the directions given them by this most attentive farmer. Those great men had both houses in town, and villas in the country; and, as they resided frequently in town, the management of their country affairs was committed to a or overseer. Now their attention to the culture of their land and to every other branch of husbandry, appears, from the directions given them how to behave upon their arrival from the city at their villas.

„Sometimes quoted as Carthago delenda est.“

—  Cato the Elder
Moreover, I consider that Carthage should be destroyed. Cato was convinced that the security of Rome depended on the annihilation of Carthage and he urged his countrymen to the Third Punic War. Towards the end of his life he ended all of his speeches in the Roman senate with these words.
