See what daily exercise does for one.

The wise man then followed a simple way of life-which is hardly surprising when you consider how even in this modern age he seeks to be as little encumbered as he possibly can.
How much longer are you going to be a pupil? From now on do some teaching as well.
Be harsh with yourself at times.
Life is never incomplete if it is an honorable one. At whatever point you leave life, if you leave it in the right way, it is whole.
You have to persevere and fortify your pertinacity until the will to good becomes a disposition to good.
To want simply what is enough nowadays suggests to people primitiveness and squalor.
Let us fight the battle-retreat from the things that attract us and rouse ourselves to meet the things that actually attack us.
If you shape your life according to nature, you will never be poor; if according to people's opinions, you will never be rich.
You cannot, I repeat, successfully acquire it and preserve your modesty at the same time.
