The foolishness of old age does not characterize all who are old, but only the foolish.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

An agreement of rash men (a conspiracy). - Consensus audacium
Avarice, 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?
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.
There is no place more delightful than one's own fireplace.
They condemn what they do not understand.
