Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes

Hatred is inveterate anger.

Nothing is more unreliable than the populace, nothing more obscure than human intentions, nothing more deceptive than the whole electoral system.

The study and knowledge of the universe would somehow be lame and defective were no practical results to follow.

A man of courage is also full of faith.

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

The wise are instructed by reason, average minds by experience, the stupid by necessity and the brute by instinct.

The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.

Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.

Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error.

The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.

The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them, each supplying what the other lacks and trying to benefit the other, always using friendly and sincere words.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.

While there's life, there's hope.

It is the peculiar quality of a fool to perceive the faults of others and to forget his own.

If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.

The more laws, the less justice.

Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind.

A friend is, as it were, a second self.

What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.

Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.
