The good and the wise lead quiet lives.
Euripides (c. 485 - 406 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.
Dishonor will not trouble me, once I am dead.
Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.
Source: Orestes (408 BC)
Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife.
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.
Source: The Cyclops, 424-23 B.C.
Among mortals second thoughts are the wisest.
