Quote by Seneca
The bad fortune of the good turns their faces up to heaven; the good fortune...
We live not according to reason, but according to fashion
Laugh at your problems; everybody else does.
We become wiser by adversity; prosperity destroys our appreciation of the right.

If sensuality were happiness, beasts were happier than men; but human felicity is lodged in...
Whatever is to make us better and happy, God has placed either openly before us...

Friendship always benefits; love sometimes injures.
Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
