The sun shines even on the wicked.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

A good mind possesses a kingdom.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage.
Chance makes a plaything of a man's life.
You need a change of soul rather than a change of climate.

You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Just as I shall select my ship when I am about to go on a voyage, or my house when I propose to take a residence, so I shall choose my death when I am about to depart from life.

Why does no one confess his sins? Because he is yet in them. It is for a man who has awoke from sleep to tell his dreams.
