The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities.
The dead alone can feel no touch of spite.
You'll never find a man on Earth, if a god leads him on, who can escape his fate.
So here I am, against my will and yours too, well I know-- no one wants the man who brings bad news.
Men should pledge themselves to nothing; for reflection makes a liar of their resolution.
You should not consider a man's age but his acts.
