Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

Let him who has given a favor be silent; let he who has received it tell it. -Qui dedit beneficium taceat; narrat qui accepit
Conversation has a kind of charm about it, an insinuating and insidious something that elicits secrets from us just like love or liquor.
About his father: Devoted to the tradition of his ancestors -Maiorum consuetudini deditus
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
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.
