There are some who praise a man free from disease; to me no man who is poor seems free from disease but to be constantly sick.
Quote by Sophocles
Hide nothing, for time, which sees all and hears all, exposes all.
No lie ever reaches old age.
A state is not a state if it belongs to one man.
A short saying often contains much wisdom.
Old age and the passage of time teach all things.
Without labor nothing prospers.
Not even Ares battles against necessity.
Better not to exist than live basely.
Men may know many things by seeing; but no prophet can see before the event,...
God's dice always have a lucky roll
For shameful deeds are taught by shameful deeds.
Profit is sweet, even if it comes from deception.
Not to be born is, past all prizing, best.
A human being is only breath and shadow.
Reverence does not die with mortals, nor does it perish whether they live or die.
The ideal condition would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct; but...
What you cannot enforce, do not command.
All is disgust when a man leaves his own nature and does what is unfit.
You should not consider a man's age but his acts.
Even a poor man can receive honors.
