: : : I have been wondering for quite some time where this phrase came from. I know the meaning, but the origin has been keeping me up. thanks for any help.

: : I've looked in a couple of quote books and several phrase books but haven't found anything. Now this will keep me up.

: I don't recognize the phrase at all. (It sounds like half a phrase, BTW.) What does it mean?

The full phrase is "Praise from Caesar is praise indeed!", but I don't know where it comes from. SS
