Always desire to learn something useful.
Quote by Sophocles
A day lays low and lifts up again all human things.
Silence gives the proper grace to women
If my body is enslaved, still my mind is free.
Even a poor man can receive honors.
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.
Without labor nothing prospers.
Man is not constituted to take pleasure in the same things always.
What you cannot enforce, do not command.
The ideal condition would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct; but...
A lie never lives to be old.
The oaths of a woman I inscribe on water.
God's dice always have a lucky roll
Best to live lightly, unthinkingly.
There is no success without hardship.
A wise doctor does not mutter incantations over a sore that needs the knife.
Much wisdom often goes with fewest words.
It's a terrible thing to speak well and be wrong.
But whoever gives birth to useless children, what would you say of him except that...
There is some pleasure even in words, when they bring forgetfulness of present miseries.
The dice of Zeus always fall luckily.
