James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Lactantius
 
  Legimus ne legantur—We read that others may not read.  1
  Memory tempers prosperity, mitigates adversity, controls youth, and delights old age.  2
  The first point of wisdom is to discern that which is false; the second, to know that which is true.  3
  Ubi timor adest, sapientia adesse nequit—Where fear is present, wisdom cannot be.  4
