Wisdom of Cicero

A life of peace, purity, and refinement leads to a calm and untroubled old age.

A mind without instruction can no more bear fruit than can a field, however fertile, without cultivation.

Advice is judged by results, not by intentions.

All action is of the mind and the mirror of the mind is the face, its index the eyes.

Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature.

Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which and be pointed out by your finger.

Freedom is a possession of inestimable value.

He only employs his passion who can make no use of his reason.

He removes the greatest ornament of friendship, who takes away from it respect.

  2. A mind can have so many good ideas but they can never come into the light without education, because it's education that turns knowledge to action. And by education I don't mean knowing how things are done, but actually knowing how to turn ideas into something tangible =).
