Twas but my tongue, 'twas not my soul that swore.
Euripides (c. 485 - 406 BC)

The good and the wise lead quiet lives.
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)
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.
