All is disgust when a man leaves his own nature and does what is unfit.
No man loves the bearer of bad tidings.
A word does not frighten the man who, in acting, feels no fear.
I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.
Isn’t it the sweetest mockery to mock our enemies?
Ignorant men don’t know what good they hold in their hands until they’ve flung it away.
Without labor nothing prospers.
But this is a true saying among men: the gifts of enemies are no gifts and profitless.
A day lays low and lifts up again all human things.
There is a point at which even justice does injury.
