Seek not, my soul, the life of the immortals but enjoy to the full the resources that are within thy reach.
A graceful and honorable old age is the childhood of immortality
Every gift which is given, even though is be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection
The test of any man lies in action.
The present will not long endure
* Pindar, a Thebian Greek wrote (circa 350 B.C.E.) War is sweet to those who have no experience of it. But the experienced man trembles exceedingly in his heart at its approach.
Man is a dream about a shadow. But when some splendour falls upon him from God, a glory comes to him and his life is sweet.
War is sweet to those who have no experience of it, but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach.
Not every truth is the better for showing its face undisguised; and often silence is the wisest thing for a man to heed.
Inborn of nature's wisdom The poet's truth.
Time is the best preserver of righteous men.
But if a man shall hope in aught he does To escape the eyes of god, he makes an error.
Even wisdom has to yield to self-interest.
Great deeds give choice of many tales. Choose a slight tale, enrich it large, and then let wise men listen.
Men are the dreams of a shadow.
