For just as some women are said to be handsome though without adornment, so this subtle manner of speech, though lacking in artificial graces, delights us.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

A tear dries quickly when it is shed for troubles of others.
The fatherland is the common parent of us all. - Patria est communis omnium parens
How like us is that very ugly beast, the monkey. .- Simia quam similis, turpissimus bestia, nobis!
The popular breeze - Aura popularis
The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.
As if a second self. - Tamquam alter idem
A youth of sensuality and intemperance delivers over to old age a worn-out body.
We are slaves of the law so that we may be able to be free. - Legum servi sumus ut liberi esse possimus
It is foolish to tear one's hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less with baldness.
