Greek Athenian Orator, Statesman, Student of Theophrastus and one of the first Peripatetics
He who is unable to take misfortune nobly is unable to take good fortune adroitly.
Who is the best counsellor? The right moment.
A timely service rendered where desired is welcome, for its usefulness and the will to accept it redound to the greater honour of the benefactor. A service rendered late and where it is not wanted is unwelcome, because the moment of its usefulness has been missed and the desire to accept it has vanished.
In prosperity friends do not leave you unless desired, whereas in adversity they stay away of their own accord.
