A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
Cicero (106 - 43 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
You must become an old man in good time if you wish to be an old man long.
To stumble twice against the same stone is a proverbial disgrace.
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.
Source: De Finibus, IV
If we are forced, at every hour, to watch or listen to horrible events, this constant stream of ghastly impressions will deprive even the most delicate among us of all respect for humanity.
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.
A tear dries quickly when it is shed for troubles of others.
