The prompter the refusal, the less the disappointment
Quote by Publilius Syrus
The gods never let us love and be wise at the same time.
Some remedies are worse than the disease.
One ungrateful man does an injury to all who stand in need of aid.
The things which belong to others please us more, and that which is ours, is...
Pain will force even the truthful to speak falsely
There are some remedies worse than the disease.
It is a fraud to borrow what we are unable to pay.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them.
No one knows what he can do until he tries.
As men, we are all equal in the presence of death
We die as often as we lose a friend.
He who lives in solitude may make his own laws.
God looks at the clean hands, not the full ones.
He who yields to his times acts wisely
Practice is the best of all instructors
You should make a woman angry if you wish her to love.
It is bad advice that cannot be altered.
No pleasure endures unseasoned by variety
I can think of nothing less pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.
There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.
