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.
Source: Hippolytus, 438.
Second thoughts are ever wiser.
A second wife is hateful to the children of the first; A viper is not more hateful.
Those whom the Gods wish to destroy They first make mad.
Try first thyself, and after call in God; For to the worker God himself lend aid.
Waste not fresh tears over old griefs.
To a father waxing old, nothing is dearer than a daughter.
