I see and approve better things, but follow worse.
Ovid (43 BC - c. 18 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
The workmanship surpassed the subject matter. -Materiam superabat opus
You who seek an end of love, love yields to business: be busy, and you will be safe.
Every lover is a soldier and has his camp in Cupid. -Militat omnis amans et habet sua castra Cupido
As long as you are lucky, you will have many friends; if cloudy times appear, you will be alone. -Donec eris felix, multos numerabis amicos; tempora si fuerint nubila, solus eris
It is the mind that makes the man, and our vigour is in our immortal soul.
Source: Metamorphoses, xiii.
Be patient and tough; one day this pain will be useful to you. -Perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim
Often the prickly thorn produces tender roses. -Saepe creat molles aspera spina rosas
He who is not prepared today will be less so tomorrow -Qui non est hodie cras minus aptus erit
Everyone is a millionaire where promises are concerned.
