Nothing's beautiful from every point of view.
Horatius (65 - 8 BC)

Whatever advice you give, be brief.
The covetous man is ever in want.
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
A word once let out of the cage cannot be whistled back again.
What forbids a laughing man from telling the truth? -Ridentem dicere verum quid vetat?
While we talk, hostile time flies away. - Dum loquimur invida aetas fugerit.

It is sweet and glorious to die for one's country. -Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori
