Noble fathers have noble children.
Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.
Joint undertakings stand a better chance when they benefit both sides.
Do not plan for ventures before finishing what's at hand.
When a good man is hurt all who would be called good must suffer with him.
Ignorance of one's misfortunes is clear gain.
I love the old way best, the simple way of poison, where we too are strong as men.
There is the sky, which is all men's together.
Know first who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.
People that seem so glorious are all show; underneath they are like everyone else.
