We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays.
Unhappy he who does his work adjourn, and to tomorrow would the search delay: his lazy morrow will be like today.
Each man has his own desires; all do not possess the same inclinations.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Is any man free except the one who can pass his life as he pleases?
How much folly there is in human affairs.
Oh, what a void there is in things.
