No man was ever wise by chance.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another.
Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.
The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom.
H. L. Mencken
