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.
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.
Source: Maxim 640. see Aesop
Valor grows by daring, fear by holding back.
It is foolish to fear that which you cannot avoid. -Stultum est timere quod vitare non potes
When fortune flatters, she does it to betray.
