He conquers twice who conquers himself in victory.
Publilius Syrus (fl. 1st Cent. BC -)
Contributed by: Zaady
I have often regretted my speech, never my silence.
Keep the golden mean between saying too much and too little.
You should not live one way in private and another in public.
It is only the ignorant that despise education.
Take care that no one hates you justly.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
The coward regards himself as cautious, the miser as thrifty.
Cruelty is fed, not weakened by tears.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
