No one reaches a high position without daring.
Publilius Syrus (fl. 1st Cent. BC -)
Contributed by: Zaady
The coward regards himself as cautious, the miser as thrifty.
Cruelty is fed, not weakened by tears.
Familiarity breeds contempt.

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.
Unless you make allowances for your friends' foibles, you betray your own.
To accept a favor is to sell one's freedom. -Beneficium accipere libertatem est vendere
Admonish your friends privately, but praise them openly.
