Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus) Quotes

Sweet and glorious it is to die for our country.

Subdue your passion or it will subdue you.

The years as they pass plunder us of one thing after another.

It’s sweet to be silly when the time’s right.

Your own safety is at stake when your neighbor’s house is ablaze.

The musician who always plays on the same string is laughed at.

I teach that all men are mad.

He is armed without who is innocent within, be this thy screen, and this thy wall of brass.

Acquital of the guilty damns the judge.

If a better system is thine, impart it; if not, make use of mine.
