When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
It is human nature to hate the man whom you have hurt.
Cease to think that the decrees of the gods can be changed by prayers.
He whom all hate all wish to see destroyed.
If you want to be loved, be lovable.
Better times perhaps await us who are now wretched.
Mountains will go into labour, and a silly little mouse will be born.
Bear patiently with a rival.
Everything that has a beginning comes to an end.
Cunning leads to knavery. It is but a step from one to the other, and that very slippery. Only lying makes the difference; add that to cunning, and it is knavery.
