More from Publilius Syrus

Fortune is like glass,–the brighter the glitter, the more easily broken.

There are some remedies worse than the disease.

I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.

Powerful indeed is the empire of habit.

Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
