Pliny The Elder (23-79) quotes


  • An object in possession seldom retains the same charm that it had in pursuit.
  • From the end spring new beginnings.
  • Grief has limits, whereas apprehension has none. For we grieve only for what we know has happened, but we fear all that possibly may happen.
  • Home is where the heart is.
  • Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man.
  • In these matters the only certainty is that nothing is certain
  • It is generally much more shameful to lose a good reputation than never to have acquired it.
  • The lust of avarice as so totally seized upon mankind that their wealth seems rather to possess them than they possess their wealth.
  • truth comes out in wine.
