fragments quotes- 10 of
Death is easier than a wretched life; and better never to have born than to live and fare badly.
It is good even for old men to learn wisdom.
Oaths are not the credit of men but men of oaths.
What good is it to live a life that brings pains?
When strength is yoked with justice, where is a mightier pair than they?
God always strives together with those who strive.
Of all the gods only death does not desire gifts.
Nor does the man sitting by the hearth beneath his roof better escape his fated doom.
Base men who prosper are unenviable.
Know not to revere human things too much.
