Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test, which is not fanciful; save by trial
Quote by Sophocles
For the wretched one night is like a thousand; for someone faring well death is...
The gods plant reason in mankind, of all good gifts the highest.
Evil gains work their punishment.
The ideal condition would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct; but...
Whoever understands how to do a kindness when he fares well would be a friend...
Best to live lightly, unthinkingly.
Whoever neglects the arts when he is young has lost the past and is dead...
Not even Ares battles against necessity.
To him who is in fear everything rustles.
Ignorant men don't know what good they hold in their hands until they've flung it...
A fearful man is always hearing things.
But this is a true saying among men: the gifts of enemies are no gifts...
The rewards of virtue alone abide secure.
When trouble ends even troubles please.
Those whose life is long still strive for gain, and for all mortals all things...
If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him...
There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells...
Silence is an ornament for women.
Wise thinkers prevail everywhere.
No speech can stain what is noble by nature.
