The man whose authority is recent is always stern.
Quote by Aeschylus
Only when a man's life comes to its end in prosperity dare we pronounce him...

Of all the gods only death does not desire gifts.
I know how men in exile feed on dreams.
It is a profitable thing, if one is wise, to seem foolish.
From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.
In war, truth is the first casualty.
Mourn for me rather as living than as dead.
But time growing old teaches all things.
And one who is just of his own free will shall not lack for happiness;...
Too few rejoice at a friend's good fortune.
By polluting clear water with slime you will never find good drinking water.

If a man suffers ill, let it be without shame; for this is the only...
Alas for the affairs of men! When they are fortunate you might compare them to...
Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times
Fear those who fear not God
It is an ill thing to be the first to bring news of ill.
