We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays.
He conquers who endures.
Our life is our own to-day, to-morrow you will be dust, a shade, and a tale that is told. Live mindful of death; the hour flies.
But when to-morrow comes, yesterday's morrow will have been already spent: and lo! a fresh morrow will be for ever making away with our years, each just beyond our grasp.
He who conquers, endures.
Your knowing a thing is nothing, unless another knows you know it.
Is any man free except the one who can pass his life as he pleases?
The belly (i.e. necessity) is the teacher of art and the liberal bestower of wit.
Please not thyself the flattering crowd to hear;
'Tis fulsome stuff, to please thy itching ear.
Survey thy soul, not what thou does appear,
But what thou art.
You pray for good health and a body that will be strong in old age. Good-but your rich foods block the gods' answer and tie Jupiter's hands.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
The belly is the giver of genius.
Each man has his own desires; all do not possess the same inclinations.
Nothing can be born of nothing; nothing can be resolved into nothing.
For Yesterday was once To-morrow.
Thou art moist and soft clay; thou must instantly be shaped by the glowing wheel.
[Lat., Udum et molle lutum es: nunc, nunc properandus et acri
Fingendus sine fine rota.]
Bad advice is often most fatal to the adviser.
It is pleasing to be pointed at with the finger and to have it said, "There goes the man."
[Lat., At pulchrum est digito monstrari et dicier his est.]
Live according to your income.
Oh, the cares of men! how much emptiness there is in human concerns!
The stomach is the teacher of the arts and the dispenser of invention.
I know you even under the skin.
Oh, what a void there is in things.
And don't consult anyone's opinions but your own.
Check disease in its approach.
