Excerpt from Demosthenes
IN the fifth century b.c., when Greece for the first time had to face a foreign foe, there were silent forces at work which needed only such a crisis to call them into active life. At the time of the Persian invasion, the sentiment of unity took Shape under Athenian leader ship, and overpowered the instincts of isolation. In the latter half of the fourth century B. C., when Greek freedom was again menaced, no such united front could be offered. The city life, on which Greek civilisation rested, had proved wanting in vital and expansive power, nor was its early promise of confederation ful filled.
