Evil gains work their punishment.
Quote by Sophocles
A short saying oft contains much wisdom
The gods plant reason in mankind, of all good gifts the highest.
Old age and the passage of time teach all things.
What you cannot enforce, do not command.
To be doing good deeds is man's most glorious task.
It's impossible to speak what it is not noble to do.
I would rather miss the mark acting well than win the day acting basely.
No enemy is worse than bad advice.
An unexamined life is not worth living...
If you are out of trouble, watch for danger
A soul that is kind and intends justice discovers more than any sophist.
You should not consider a man's age but his acts.
Wise thinkers prevail everywhere.
Even a poor man can receive honors.
There is a point at which even justice does injury.
Success is dependent on effort.
Always desire to learn something useful.
For the wretched one night is like a thousand; for someone faring well death is...
How sweet for those faring badly to forget their misfortunes even for a short time.
Silence is an ornament for women.
