There is no greater evil than anarchy.
There is no sense in crying over spilt milk. Why bewail what is done and cannot be recalled?
There is no success without hardship.
There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us.
There is nothing more hateful than bad advice.
There is some pleasure even in words, when they bring forgetfulness of present miseries.
Things gained through unjust fraud are never secure.
Those whose life is long still strive for gain, and for all mortals all things take second place to money.
Time alone reveals the just man; but you might discern a bad man in a single day.
To be doing good deeds is man's most glorious task.
To give birth is a fearsome thing; there is no hating the child one has borne even when injured by it.
To him who is in fear everything rustles.
To live without evil belongs only to the gods.
Trust dies but mistrust blossoms.
War never takes a wicked man by chance, the good man always.
What house, bloated with luxury, ever became prosperous without a woman's excellence?
When a man has lost all happiness, he's not alive. Call him a breathing corpse.
When trouble ends even troubles please.
Who seeks shall find.
Whoever gets up and comes to grips with Love like a boxer is a fool.
Whoever grows angry amid troubles applies a drug worse than the disease and is a physician unskilled about misfortunes.
Whoever neglects the arts when he is young has lost the past and is dead to the future.
Whoever thinks his friend more important than his country, I rate him nowhere.
Whoever thinks that he alone has speech, or possesses speech or mind above others, when unfolded such men are seen to be empty.
Whoever understands how to do a kindness when he fares well would be a friend better than any possession.
