One must know that war is common, justice is strife, and everything happens according to strife and necessity. 

Eyes and ears are poor witnesses to people if they have the uncultured souls. 

It is impossible to step into the same river twice. 

The best people renounce all for one goal, the eternal fame of mortals; but most people stuff themselves like cattle.

Men who are lovers of wisdom [i.e., philosophers] must be inquirers into many things.

Wisdom is one thing, to know how to make true judgment, how all things are steered through all things. 

Deliberate violence is more to be quenched than a fire. 

Hide our ignorance as we will, an evening of wine soon reveals it.

Listening not to me but to reason [logos], it is wise to agree that all is one.

A man’s character is his fate.
