Virgil (70 BC- 19 BC) quotes


  • Age carries all things away, even the mind.
  • All our sweetest hours fly fastest.
  • Better times perhaps await us who are now wretched.
  • But meanwhile time flies; it flies never to be regained.
  • Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance.
  • Each of us bears his own hell.
  • Endure the present, and watch for better things.
  • Fate will find a way.
  • Fortune favors the bold.
  • It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be.
  • Mind moves matter.
  • Perhaps the day may come when we shall remember these sufferings with joy.
