The envious die not once, but as oft as the envied win applause.
Fortunate people often have very favorable beginnings and very tragic endings. What matters isn't being applauded when you arrive - for that is common - but being missed when you leave.
True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.
Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.
