Silius Italicus quotes- 8 of
Do not doubt a woman's power to aid; no toil
Can daunt a pure affection.
Take the word of experience, I speak the truth: inaction is safest in danger.
Groundless superstition ill befits an army; valor is the only deity that rules in the warrior's breast.
Nothing fairer than peace is given to man to know;
Better one peace than countless triumphs.
Make haste! The tide of Fortune soon ebbs.
He thought, the madman, it was an honor to be feared.
Where two take counsel there is no lack of plans.
Neither the wrath of Heaven nor the attacks of enemies
are as fatal as Pleasure alone when she infects the mind.
