  •  “Genius always gives its best at first; prudence, at last.”

  •  “The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man... It is more powerful than external circumstances.”

  •  “Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”

  •  “The first and greatest punishment of the sinner is the conscience of sin.”

  •  “It is the superfluous things for which men sweat, - superfluous things that wear our togas theadbare, that force us to grow old in camp, that dash us upon foreign shores.” “Expecting is the greatest impediment to living. In anticipation of tomorrow, it loses today.”

  •  “As long as you live, keep learning how to live.”

    Lucius Annaeus Seneca


  • “We should every night call ourselves to an account: what infirmity have I mastered today? what passions opposed? what temptation resisted? what virtue acquired? Our vices will abate of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift.”

  •  “Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.”

  •  “A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.”

  •  “No one can be happy who has been thrust outside the pale of truth. And there are two ways that one can be removed from this realm: by lying, or by being lied to.”

  •  “It is more fitting for a man to laugh at life than to lament over it.”

  •  “I don't trust liberals, I trust conservatives.”

  •  “Wisdom allows nothing to be good that will not be so forever; no man to be happy but he that needs no other happiness than what he has within himself; no man to be great or powerful that is not master of himself.”

  •  “The good things of prosperity are to be wished; but the good things that belong to adversity are to be admired.”

  •  “It's not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It's because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”

  •  “The way is long if one follows precepts, but short... if one follows patterns.”

  •  “It's not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It's because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”

  •  “Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment.”
