Wars, the horror of mothers. -Bella detesta matribus
Horatius (65 - 8 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
It is your business, when the wall next door catches fire.
He who feared he would not succeed sat still. -Sedit qui timuit ne non succederet
To save a man's life against his will is the same as killing him.
Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero (Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow)
Source: Ars Poetica, v. 102; Hoarce (Odes, I.xi.1)
Who has courage to say no again and again to desires, to despise the objects of ambition, who is a whole in himself, smoothed and rounded.
He's happy who, far away from business, like the races of men of old, tills his ancestral fields with his own oxen, unbound by any interest to pay.
Splendidly false. -Splendide mendax
It is sweet to relax at the proper time. -Dulce est desipere in loco
