It is best for the wise man not to seem wise.

The man who does ill must suffer ill.

For the impious act begets more after it, like to the parent stock.

Ah, lives of men! When prosperous they glitter - Like a fair picture; when misfortune comes - A wet sponge at one blow has blurred the painting.

I know how men in exile feed on dreams.

Death is easier than a wretched life; and better never to have born than to live and fare badly.

By polluting clear water with slime you will never find good drinking water.

It is an easy thing for one whose foot is on the outside of calamity to give advice and to rebuke the sufferer.

There is no sickness worse for me than words that to be kind must lie.

I, schooled in misery, know many purifying rites, and I know where speech is proper and where silence.

Destiny waits alike for the free man as well as for him enslaved by another's might.

God always strives together with those who strive.

Be bold and boast, just like the cock beside the hen.

For know that no one is free, except Zeus.

Obedience is the mother of success and is wedded to safety.

Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.

From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.

God loves to help him who strives to help himself.

There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
