It is always in season for old men to learn.
When a match has equal partners then I fear not.
Memory is the mother of all wisdom.
Who, except the gods, can live time through forever without any pain?
The man whose authority is recent is always stern.
It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.
God loves to help him who strives to help himself.
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
The reward of suffering is experience.
Death is softer by far than tyranny.
It is easy when we are in prosperity to give advice to the afflicted.
In every tyrant's heart there springs in the end this poison, that he cannot trust a friend.
