Ennius
 
  Amicus certus in re incerta cernitur—A true friend is seen when fortune wavers.  1
  Kindnesses misplaced are nothing but a curse and a disservice.  2
  Moribus antiquis res stat Romana virisque—The Roman commonwealth stands by its ancient manners and men.  3
  Quod est ante pedes nemo spectat: cœli / Scrutantur plagas—What is at his feet no one looks at; they scan the tracks of heaven.  4
  Tui me miseret, mei piget—I pity you and vex myself.  5
