All things are cause for either laughter or weeping.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
He who does not prevent a crime when he can, encourages it.
Laws do not persuade just because they threaten.
Even while they teach, men learn.
We learn not in the school, but in life.
Leisure without literature is death, or rather the burial of a living man -Otium sine litteris mors est et hominis vivi sepultura

Do the best you can . . . enjoy the present . . . rest satisfied with what you have.
Life is neither a good nor an evil; it is simply the place where good and evil exist.
As long as you live, keep learning how to live.
Believe me, that was a happy age, before the days of architects, before the days of builders.
