Don't you know that silence supports the accuser's charge?
Quote by Sophocles
What house, bloated with luxury, ever became prosperous without a woman's excellence?
Success is dependent on effort.
All a man's affairs become diseased when he wishes to cure evils by evils.
To him who is in fear everything rustles.
A lie never lives to be old.
When a man has lost all happiness, he's not alive. Call him a breathing corpse.
Things gained through unjust fraud are never secure.
The gods plant reason in mankind, of all good gifts the highest.
If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him...
Time is a kindly God
The oaths of a woman I inscribe on water.
Ignorant men don't know what good they hold in their hands until they've flung it...
A human being is only breath and shadow.
Whoever gets up and comes to grips with Love like a boxer is a fool.
The rewards of virtue alone abide secure.
Wise thinkers prevail everywhere.
Not to be born is, past all prizing, best.
For those whose wit becomes the mother of villainy, those it educates to be evil...
A state is not a state if it belongs to one man.
For the dead there are no more toils.
