Love, and a cough, cannot be hid.
He that will learn to pray, let him go to sea
Persons unmask their evilest qualities when they do quarrel.
Never was a miser a brave soul.
One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters.
One father is enough to govern one hundred sons, but not a hundred sons one father
The best mirror is an old friend.
Destiny is always dark.
Good words are worth much and cost little.
Words are women, deeds are men
The death of wolves is the safety of the sheep.
In solitude, be a multitude to thyself. Tibullus by all means use sometimes to be alone.
A tyrant is most tyrant to himself
I struck the board, and cried, No more: I will abroad. What? shall I ever sigh and pine? My lines and life are free; free as the road, Loose as the wind, as large as store. Shall I be still in suit? Have I no harvest but a thorn To let me blood, and not restore What I have lost with cordial fruit? Sure there was wine Before my sighs did dry it; there was corn Before my tears did drown it; Is the year only lost to me? Have I no bays to crown it?
That is gold which is worth gold.
