Born 43 B.C., died 17 A.D.
Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs.
He who would not be idle, let him fall in love.
He who says o'er much I love not is in love.
Most safely shall you tread the middle path.
All love is vanquished by a succeeding love.
The penalty may be removed, the crime is eternal.
The prayers of cowards fortune spurns.
Give way to your opponent; thus will you gain the crown of victory.
The heavier crop is ever in others' fields.
Let what is irksome become habitual, no more will it trouble you.
The cause is hidden; the effect is visible to all.
Death is less bitter punishment than death's delay.
The gods behold all righteous actions.
Alas! how difficult it is not to betray one's guilt by one's looks.
Often they benefit who suffer wrong.
He whom all hate all wish to see destroyed.
Use the occasion, for it passes swiftly.
The man who has experienced shipwreck shudders even at a calm sea.
Against the bold, daring is unsafe.
