Whoever has trusted a woman has trusted deceivers.
Whoever lives among many evils just as I, how can dying not be a source of gain?
Whoever grows angry amid troubles applies a drug worse than the disease and is a physician unskilled about misfortunes.
And whoever walks a furlong without sympathy walks to his own funeral drest in his shroud.
Whoever claims to understand another person completely, is either entirely ignorant of himself, or else has a nature so small that he can measure it easily, and supposes it to be the standard of every other nature.
Whoever I am, or whatever I am doing, some kind of excellence is within my reach.
Whoever is detected in a shameful fraud is ever after not believed even if they speak the truth.
Whoever has witnessed another’s ideal becomes his inexorable judge and as it were his evil conscience.
Whoever does not regard what he has as most ample wealth, is unhappy, though he be master of the world.
