When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do


One of the first great men in history to recognize the social value of majority rule was the famous churchman St. Augustine.
When St Augustine dispatched St Ambrose from Milan to Rome. Ambrose was puzzled about the proper day on which to fast, for, in Rome, it was then the custom to fast on Saturday. He asked St Augustine which fast day to observe. The learned Augustine remarked, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." because these words of St Augustine were both wise and practical they have become one of the world's noblest maxims.
