Men grow tired of sleep, love, singing and dancing, sooner than war.
The glorious gifts of the gods are not to be cast aside.
Of men who have a sense of honor, more come through alive than are slain, but from those who flee comes neither glory nor any help.
So it is that the gods do not give all men gifts of grace - neither good looks nor intelligence nor eloquence.

I too shall lie in the dust when I am dead, but now let me win noble renown.
It is not possible to fight beyond your strength, even if you strive.

This has always been a motto of mine: Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will - his personal responsibility in the realm of faith and morals.
The starting point of all achievement is desire.
The thermometer of success is merely the jealousy of the malcontents.
