Other men's sins are before our eyes; our own are behind our backs.

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.
Source: Epistulae ad Lucilium, epistle 4
This life is only a prelude to eternity.
It is the quality rather than the quantity that matters.
He who comes to a conclusion when the other side is unheard, may have been just in his conclusion, but yet has not been just in his conduct.
If thou live according to nature, thou wilt never be poor; if according to the opinions of the world, thou wilt never be rich.
There is no delight in owning anything unshared.
