No possession is gratifying without a companion.
  [Lat., Nullius boni sine sociis jucunda possessio est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (VI) [Companionship]

There is no satisfaction in any good without a companion.
  [Lat., Nullius boni sine sociis jucunda possessio est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (VI) [Satisfaction]

Men learn while they teach.
  [Lat., Homines, dum docent, discunt.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (VII) [Learning]

Live with men as if God saw you; converse with God as if men heard you.
  [Lat., Sic vive cum hominibus, tanquem deus videat; sic loquere cum deo, tanquam homines audiant.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (X) [Conscience]

The world is the mighty temple of the gods.
  [Lat., Mundus est ingens deorum omnium templum.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (X) [Gods]

No man is free who is a slave to the flesh.
  [Lat., Nemo liber est, qui corpori servit.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCII) [Freedom]

We become wiser by adversity; prosperity destroys our appreciation of the right.
  [Lat., Melius in malis sapimus, secunda rectum auferunt.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCIV) [Wisdom]

But life is a warfare.
  [Lat., Atqui vivere, militare est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCVI) [Life]

The mind is the master over every kind of fortune: itself acts in both ways, being the cause of its own happiness and misery.
  [Lat., Valentior omni fortuna animus est: in utramque partem ipse res suas ducit, beataeque miserae vitae sibi causa est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCVIII) [Mind]

The mind that is anxious about the future is miserable.
  [Lat., Calamitosus est animus futuri anxius.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCVIII)
        [Future : Proverbs]

There is nothing so wretched or foolish as to anticipate misfortunes. What madness it is in your expecting evil before it arrives!
  [Lat., Nil est nec miserius nec stultius quam praetimere. Quae ista dementia est, malum suum antecedere!]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XCVIII)

There is no greater punishment of wickedness that that it is dissatisfied with itself and its deeds.
  [Lat., Nec ulla major poena nequitiae est, quam quod sibi et suis displicet.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XLII) [Punishment]

The language of truth is simple.
  [Lat., Veritatis simplex oratio est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XLIX) [Truth]

The swiftness of time in infinite, which is still more evident to those who look back upon the past.
  [Lat., Infinita est velocitas temporis quae magis apparet respicientibus.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XLIX) [Time]

No man can live happily who regards himself alone, who turns everything to his own advantage. Thou must live for another, if thou wishest to live for thyself.
  [Lat., Non potest quisquam beate degere, qui se tantum intuetur, qui omnia ad utilitates suas convertit; alteri vivas oportet, si vis tibi vivere.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XLVIII) [Happiness]

If you live according to nature, you never will be poor; if according to the world's caprice, you will never be rich.
  [Lat., Si ad naturam vivas, nunquam eris pauper; si ad opinionem, numquam dives.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XVI) [Life]

It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live.
  [Lat., Molestum est, semper vitam inchoare; male vivunt qui semper vivere incipiunt.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XXIII) [Life]

It is uncertain in what place death may await thee; therefore expect it in any place.
  [Lat., Incertum est quo te loco mors expectet: itaque tu illam omni loco expecta.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XXVI) [Death]

What once were vices, are now the manners of the day.
  [Lat., Quae fuerant vitia mores sunt.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XXXIX) [Manners]

An old man in his rudiments is a disgraceful object. It is for youth to acquire, and for age to apply.
  [Lat., Turpis et ridicula res est elementarius senex; juveni parandum, seni utendum est.]
      - Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XXXVI, 4) [Age]

God is not to be worshipped with sacrifices and blood; for what pleasure can He have in the slaughter of the innocent? but with a pure mind, a food and honest purpose. Temples are not to be built for Him with stones piled on high; God is to be consecrated in the breast of each.
  [Lat., Deum non immolationibus et sanguine multo colendum: quae enim ex trucidatione immerentium voluptas est? sed mente pura, bono honestoque proposito. Non templa illi, congestis in altitudinem saxis, struenda sunt; in suo cuique consecrandus est pectore.]
      - Fragment (V, 204) [God]

Adverse fortune seldom spares men of the noblest virtues. No one can with safety expose himself often to dangers. The man who has often escaped is at last caught.
  [Lat., Iniqua raro maximis virtutibus
    Fortuna parcit. Nemo se tuto diu
      Periculis offerre tam crebis potest,
        Quem saepe transit casus aliquando invenit.]
      - Hercules Furens (325) [Fortune]

An avenging God closely follows the haughty.
  [Lat., Sequitur superbos ultor a tergo deus.]
      - Hercules Furens (385) [Punishment]

When you see a man in distress, recognize him as a fellow man.
  [Lat., Quemcumque miserum videris, hominem scias.]
      - Hercules Furens (463) [Misfortune]

O Fortune, that enviest the brave, what unequal rewards thou bestowest on the righteous!
  [Lat., O Fortuna, viris invida fortibus,
    Quam non aeque bonis praemia dividis!]
      - Hercules Furens (524) [Fortune]
