WHAT DO YOU MEAN "HE'S A
Plain, every-day slang is the ex
pression, "He's a brick," but, never
theless, it is of classic origin and to
trace it to its source we must turn to
the pages of Plutarch's "Lives."
When Lycurgus ruled Sparta, accord
ing to Plutarch's story, he refused to
build a wall of brick or stone about
the city, but depended on his soldiers
to protect the people. When a Spartan
citizen complained to him that the
city had no "wall and was in danger
of attack the ruler replied: "Sparta
has a wall; there is the city's wall,"
pointing to his soldiers "and every
man is a brick."
