He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.
Beauty is a short-lived tyranny.
Only the extremely ignorant or the extremely intelligent can resist change.
I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.
By all means marry; if you get a good wife you'll become happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher.
I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance.
