Stop abusing my verses, or publish some of your own.
Martial (c.40 - c.102)
Contributed by: Zaady
I know these are nothing.
Tomorrow's life is too late. Live today.
Virtue extends our days: he lives two lives who relives his past with pleasure.
What's a wretched man? A man whom no man pleases.
The flaw which is hidden is deemed greater than it is.
I don't like you, Sabidius, I can't say why; But I can say this: I don't like you, Sabidius
You complain, friend Swift, of the length of my epigrams, but you yourself write nothing. Yours are shorter.
To be able to look back on one's past life with satisfaction is to live twice.
There is no glory in outstripping donkeys.
