All men’s gains are the fruit of venturing.

Circumstances rule men; men do not rule circumstances.

Force has no place where there is need of skill.

Great deeds are usually wrought at great risks.

Men trust their ears less than their eyes.

Of all possessions a friend is the most precious.

The worst pain a man can suffer: to have insight into much and power over nothing.

/ Herodotus
