glory can be eternal.

honorable, it is the wholeness of life.

When weapon speaks, the laws keep silence.

The power of philosophy
is to cure the souls, to send the empty cares, to relieve from
passion, to scare fears away.
The best philosophy is to
deny all and donít have a certain opinion about anything.

of souls is the philosophy. Her help doesnít come from outside like a
help against corporal illnesses, but we should use all our strengths
and means that can help us to heal ourselves.
A culture of intellect is the philosophy.
It doesnít exist
anything more excellent than intellect.
Rhetoric is a light
that adds a glance to the intellect.
Time destroys the false
opinions, but he confirms judgments of nature.

possess wisdom; you should be able to use it too.
