43 BC - 17 AD
Category: Poet

Minds that are ill at ease are agitated by both hope and fear.


A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man's brow.


I attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.


It is the poor man who'll ever count his flock.


No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it.


We are ever striving after what is forbidden, and coveting what is denied us.


The penalty may be removed, the crime is eternal.


If any person wish to be idle, let them fall in love.


The sharp thorn often produces delicate roses.


Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.


The bold adventurer succeeds the best.


Suppressed grief suffocates, it rages within the breast, and is forced to multiply its strength.


He who would not be idle, let him fall in love.


Bear patiently with a rival.


Like fragile ice anger passes away in time.


First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, "I believe," three times.


Medicine sometimes snatches away health, sometimes gives it.


He who can believe himself well, will be well.


Use the occasion, for it passes swiftly.


Those things that nature denied to human sight, she revealed to the eyes of the soul.
