Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Every stage of human life, except the last, is marked out by certain and defined limits; old age alone has no precise and determinate boundary.

Thrift is of great revenue.
Time destroys the speculation of men, but it confirms nature.
Often it is not even advantageous to know what will be. - Saepe ne utile quidem est scire quid futurum sit
If the truth were self-evident, eloquence would be unnecessary.
For whose benefit is it? - Cui bono?
There is wickedness in the intention of wickedness, even though it be not perpetrated in the act.
Nothing troubles you for which you do not yearn.
