The anvil of justice is planted firm, and fate who makes the sword does the forging in advance.
Quote by Aeschylus
Few men have the natural strength to honour a friend's success without envy.
When strength is yoked with justice, where is a mightier pair than they?
For somehow this disease inheres in tyranny, never to trust one's friends.

Memory is the mother of all wisdom.

From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.

When a match has equal partners then I fear not.
Know not to revere human things too much.
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
For a murderous blow let murderous blow atone.
