  • Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.

     

 

  • He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.

 

  • It is not living that matters, but living rightly.

     

  • The poets are only the interpreters of the gods.

     

  • “What a lot of things there are a man can do without.”
