We often want one thing and pray for another, not telling the truth even to the gods.

Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body.
Let him who has given a favor be silent; let he who has received it tell it. -Qui dedit beneficium taceat; narrat qui accepit
When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
The sun shines even on the wicked.
A good mind possesses a kingdom.
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. . . . It is more powerful than external circumstances.
All cruelty springs from weakness.
It is not because it is difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.
Death: A punishment to some, to some a gift, and to many a favor.
