Cease to think that the decrees of the gods can be changed by prayers.
Quote by Virgil
Time passes irrevocably.
Confidence cannot find a place wherein to rest in safety.
Every man makes a god of his own desire.
Veiling truth in mystery.
The medicine increases the disease.
Who asks whether the enemy was defeated by strategy or valor?
Time is flying never to return.
As the twig is bent the tree inclines.
They can because they think they can.
Each of us bears his own Hell
Trust one who has tried.
Happy is he who can trace effects to their causes.
Your descendants shall gather your fruits.
From one learn all. I fear the Greeks, even when they bring gifts.
The only safety for the conquered is to expect no safety.
What each man feared would happen to himself, did not trouble him when he saw...
I shudder when relating it.
O accursed hunger of gold, to what dost thou not compel human hearts!
They succeed, because they think they can.
Myself acquainted with misfortune, I learn to help the unfortunate.
