You complain, friend Swift, of the length of my epigrams, but you yourself write nothing. Yours are shorter.
Martial (c.40 - c.102)
Contributed by: Zaady
To be able to look back on one's past life with satisfaction is to live twice.
There is no glory in outstripping donkeys.
Some good, some so-so, and lots plain bad: that's how a book of poems is made, my Friend.
Conceal a flaw, and the world will imagine the worst
The country in town.
