Truly Wise

Here are some great quotes from Ovid:

A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man's brow. Ovid

Either do not attempt at all, or go through with it. Ovid

First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, "I believe," three times. Ovid

It is convenient that there be gods, and, as it is convenient, let us believe there are. Ovid

Love is a kind of warfare. Ovid

People are slow to claim confidence in undertakings of magnitude. Ovid

The sharp thorn often produces delicate roses. Ovid

There is no such thing as pure pleasure; some anxiety always goes with it. Ovid

You can learn from anyone even your enemy. Ovid
