Author Quotes

It is noble and so regarded both among nations and individuals to keep faith in adversity.

Make haste! The tide of Fortune soon ebbs.

Take the word of experience, I speak the truth: inaction is safest in danger.

The wheel of time rolls downward through various changes.

Valor, gradually overpowered by the delicious poison of sloth, grows torpid.

Where two take counsel there is no lack of plans.

Brave men ought not to be cast down by adversity.

Away with delay; the chance of great fortune is short-lived.

Adversity tries men, and virtue strives for glory through adverse circumstances, undeterred by hard obstacles.

Virtue herself is her own fairest reward.
