Seneca

***************

Virtue is a vice
when it wears the mask of God’s
common dominion

***************

All nature is a
recognition of art’s gift
to adversity

***************

Labor injures the
mind; its only remedy
is the shrift of gold

***************

Hatred impairs one’s
self-respect, but vengeance is
fortune’s great favor

***************

Be silent, and if
you can’t be silent know that
we’re not listening

***************

Consult a madman
on all things and steer in a
favorable wind

***************

A fool knows not that
recognizable order
is never maintained

***************

Deny admittance
to the passions and life is
onerous solace

***************

The infirmity
of language shrivels before
the terror of law

***************

Live among men as
if you are unable to
bear humanity

***************
