(444-360 B.C), King of Sparta
By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.
Loyalty consists not in vain pomp, but in great virtues.
The king will best govern his realm who reigneth over his people as a father doth over his children.
If I have done any deed worthy of remembrance, that deed will be my monument.—If not, no monument can preserve my memory.
The place should not honor the man, but the man the place.
Valor would cease to be a virtue if there were no injustice.
