Time is a kindly God
Quote by Sophocles
To him who is in fear everything rustles.
No honest man will argue on every side
Who seeks shall find.
I see that all of us who live are nothing but images or insubstantial shadow.
The ideal condition would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct; but...
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.
Profit is sweet, even if it comes from deception.
In a just cause the weak will beat the strong.
If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him...
Men of ill judgment ignore the good that lies within their hands, till they have...
Evil gains work their punishment.
Not all things are to be discovered; many are better concealed.
Men should pledge themselves to nothing; for reflection makes a liar of their resolution.
There is no success without hardship.
It is terrible to speak well and be wrong.
For shameful deeds are taught by shameful deeds.
For the dead there are no more toils.
Always desire to learn something useful.
But whoever gives birth to useless children, what would you say of him except that...
You should not consider a man's age but his acts.
