Truth never perishes.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.
The primary sign of a well-ordered mind is a man's ability to remain in one place and linger in his own company.
We should every night call ourselves to an account; What infirmity have I mastered today? What passions opposed? What temptation resisted? What virtue acquired? Our vices will abort of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift.
Other men's sins are before our eyes; our own are behind our backs.
Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.

The person you are matters more than the place to which you go.

Shame may restrain what law does not prohibit.
It is the superfluous things for which men sweat.

I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good.
