Curst greed of gold, what crimes thy tyrant power has caused
Quote by Virgil
Every calamity is to be overcome by endurance.
Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were...
Who asks whether the enemy was defeated by strategy or valor?
Look with favour upon a bold beginning.
There's a snake lurking in the grass.
What region of the earth is not full of our calamities?
I shudder when relating it.
Persevere and preserve yourselves for better circumstances.
I fear the Greeks, even when they bring gifts.
Your descendants shall gather your fruits.
Perhaps the day may come when we shall remember these sufferings with joy.
If one swain scorns you, you will soon find another.
The descent to the infernal regions is easy enough, but to retrace one's steps, and...
Each of us bears his own Hell
Perhaps even these things, one day, will be pleasing to remember.
Everyone is dragged on by their favorite pleasure.
Whatever it be, every fortune is to be overcome by bearing it
Yield not to calamity, but face her boldly.
Go forth a conqueror and win great victories.
They are able because they think they are able.
