To stumble twice against the same stone is a proverbial disgrace.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
We think a happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
In everything truth surpasses the imitation and copy.
The injuries that befall us unexpectedly are less severe than those which are deliberately anticipated.
We are born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race.

You will be as much value to others as you have been to yourself.
While all other things are uncertain, evanescent, and ephemeral, virtue alone is fixed with deep roots; it can neither be overthrown by any violence or moved from its place.
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!
