When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
The sun shines even on the wicked.
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.

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.
