Էջ 75 - All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous and to the wicked; to the good, and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

Էջ 169 - When thou wishest to delight thyself, think of the virtues of those who live with thee; for instance, the activity of one, and the modesty of another, and the liberality of a third, and some other good quality of a fourth.
Էջ 177 - ... and co-operating with the whole, as the -parts of our body with one another. How many a Chrysippus, how many a Socrates, how many an Epictetus has time already swallowed up ! And let the same thought occur to thee with reference to every man and thing (v.
