Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero (Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow)

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.
He will always be a slave who does not know how to live upon a little.
It is of no consequence of what parents a man is born, so he be a man of merit.
Unaffected by manners. -Simplex munditiis
