(10-102), Roman poet
Tomorrow I will live, the fool does say: today itself's too late; the wise lived yesterday.
Why do strong arms fatigue themselves with silly dumb bells? Trenching a vineyard is worthier exercise for men.
If fame is only to come after death, I am in no hurry for it.
Fortune gives too much to many, but to none enough.
A good man doubles the length of his existence; to have lived so as to look back with pleasure on our past life is to liye twice.
Life is not to live, but to be well.
Laugh if you are wise.
It is to live twice, when we can enjoy the recollections of our former life.
Of no day can the retrospect cause pain to a good man, nor has one passed away which he is unwilling to remember: the period of his life seems prolonged by his good acts; and we may be said to live twice, when we can reflect with pleasure on the days that are gone.
A face that cannot smile is never good.
When all the blandishments of life are gone the coward sneaks to death; the brave lives on.
You give me nothing during your life, but you promise to provide for me at your death. If you are not a fool, you know what you make me wish for.
