He does not write at all whose poems no man reads
Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is...
As for literature, thefts cannot harm it, while the lapse of ages augments its value
To the wise, life is a problem; to the fool, a solution.
The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
To be able to enjoy one's past life is to live twice.
Everything is only for a day, both that which remembers and that which is remembered
Conceal a flaw, and the world will imagine the worst
Who persuaded you to cut off the nose of your wife's lover? Wretched husband, that...
Each day provides its own gifts
Perhaps there are none more lazy, or more truly ignorant, than your everlasting readers.
A wrong - doer is often a man that has left something undone, not always...
A man's worth is no greater than his ambitions.
Glory paid to our ashes comes too late
All is ephemeral, - fame and the famous as well
To refrain from imitation is the best revenge.
Execute every act of thy life as though it were thy last.
Life is a warfare and a stranger's sojourn, and after fame is oblivion.
Nothing is evil which is according to nature.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do...
He who does not punish evil commands it to be done.
Nature made him, and then broke the mold
