Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.
Euripides (c. 485 - 406 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Chance fights ever on the side of the prudent.
Slight not what's near, when aiming at what's far.
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.
Light be the earth upon you, lightly rest.
Account no man happy till he dies.
Money is far more persuasive than logical arguments.
To generous souls, every task is noble.
I sacrifice to no god save myself - And to my belly, greatest of deities.
