The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run ever faster if encouraged.

He who has lived in obscurity has lived well -Bene qui latuit bene vixit
Courage conquers all things; it even gives strength to the body.
Fortune and love favor the brave.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion.
Whether they give or refuse, it delights women just the same to have been asked. -Quae dant, quaeque negant, gaudent tamen esse rogatae.

Dripping hollows out rock. -Gutta cavat lapidem
To feed the flames. -Alere flammas
Said of Ennius: Greatest in genius, rough in skill. -Ingenio maximus, arte rudis
