Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.
Horatius (65 - 8 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Nothing's beautiful from every point of view.
Whatever advice you give, be brief.
The covetous man is ever in want.
Pale death knocks with impartial foot at poor men's hovels and king's palaces. -Pallida Mors Pale Death
When discord dreadful bursts her brazen bars, And shatters locks to thunder forth her wars.
What has this unfeeling age of ours left untried, what wickedness has it shunned?
Punishment closely follows guilt as its companion. -Culpam poena premit comes
Joking aside, let us turn to serious matters. -Amoto quaeramus seria ludo
To flee vice is the beginning of virtue, and the beginning of wisdom is to have got rid of folly.
