Whatever advice you give, be brief.
Horatius (65 - 8 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
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
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
Happy the man, and happy he alone, He who can call today his own; He who secure within can say: Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
